P07.06        Water Saturation Pressure Over Aqueous NaOH Using Electrolyte NRTL

Calculate the saturation pressure of an aqueous NaOH solution at J = 100°C at NaOH concentrations of 10, 30 and 50 wt.-%. Use the Electrolyte NRTL model. The necessary parameters are given in example 7.2.

P07.07        Saturation Pressure Over an H2SO4 Solution Using Electrolyte NRTL

Calculate the saturation pressure of an aqueous H2SO4 solution at J = 100°C at H2SO4 concentrations of 10, 30 and 50 wt.-%. Use the Electrolyte NRTL model. The required parameters can be downloaded from the textbook page on www.ddbst.com.

P07.08        Liquid Heat Capacity of an NaCl Solution Using Electrolyte NRTL

Calculate the liquid heat capacity of a 20 wt.-% NaCl solution at J = 80°C using the Electrolyte NRTL model. The required parameters can be downloaded from the textbook page on www.ddbst.com.

P07.09        Saturation Pressure of an Ammonia Solution Using the NRTL Equation and Electrolyte NRTL

Calculate the saturation pressure of a 20 wt.-% ammonia solution using the NRTL equation and the Electrolyte NRTL model at J = 20°C. An ideal vapor phase can be assumed. The pKb value of ammonia at 25°C is 4.75. Further required parameters can be downloaded from the textbook page on www.ddbst.com. Do you think that the use of the electrolyte model is necessary in this case? How is the situation affected if significant amounts of CO2 are added to the system?
