Using Penman’s method, estimate the Etp for July 15, 1994, from a field at an elevation of 200 m. The average temperature for July 15 was 16° C, with a maximum T of 22° C and a minimum of 10° C. The previous day’s average temperature was 14° C, and the following day’s average temperature was 21° C. The early morning actual vapor pressure on July 15 was 1.3 kPa: the wind speed was 2 m/sec, and Rn was 15 MJ/m2/d. (heat index was found to be 40 and saturated vapor pressure was found to be 2.0 kPa)

Consider a water storage tank with inlet and outlet streams that
can be independently adjusted. The storage tank has a
cross-sectional area of 100 ft^{2}. Initially, the flow in
is equal to the flow out, which is 5 ft^{3}/min. The
initial height of water in the tank is 4 ft and the height of the
tank is 10 ft. At t = 0 a ramp increase in the inlet flowrate is
made, so that F_{i}(t) = 5 + 0.25 t where the flowrate
units are ft^{3}/min. How long does it take the tank to
overflow? Solve using Laplace transforms. Obtain a general
expresson for systems modeled in deviation variable form by:

dy/dt= ku(t)

At a certain refinery, the refining process requires the production of at least two gallons of gasoline for each gallon of fuel oil. To meet the anticipated demands of winter, at least three million gallons of fuel oil a day will need to be produced. The demand for gasoline, on the other hand, is not more than 6.4 million gallons a day. If gasoline is selling for $1.90 per gallon and fuel oil sells for $1.50/gal, how much of each should be produced in order to maximize revenue?

Hot air containing 1 mole% water vapor flows into a textile dryer at 350°F and 6.2 psig at a rate of 30,000 ft3/hr, and emerges at 220°F and 1 atm absolute pressure (i.e., it is vented outside the building) containing 10 mol% H2O. Calculate the following:a. The mass flow rate of the entering hot air stream in lbm/hrb. The rate of evaporation of the water from the textiles in lbm/hrc.

Acetic acid (AA) is initially dissolved in water, where the mass fraction of AA is 0.15. By contacting the water solution with hexanol (which does not dissolve in water), most of the AA is transferred fromthe water phase to the hexanol. The AA-hexanol stream leaving the extractor contains AA at a mass fraction of 0.10and the residual AA-water stream leaving the extractor contains AA at a mass fraction of 0.002.

a. Sketch and label a flow diagram; calculate the degree of freedom.

b. If the initial AA-water stream enters the extractor at 5kg/min, what are the flowrates of the three other streams?
