    Problem:

    A mixture of perfect gases consist of 3kg of carbon monoxide and 1.5kg of nitrogen at a pressure of 0.1 MPa and a temperature of 298.15 K. Using table 5-1, find
    a) the effective molecular mass of the mixture
    b) its gas constant
    c) specific heat ratio
    d) partial pressures
    e) density

    Solution:

    a) The formula for the molar mass of a mixture of gases is
    (please see the attached file)
    ( 1)
    where M = molar mass [kg/kmol], Xk = molar fraction of species "k" in the mixture, which is given by the ratio
    ...
