Thermodynamics

Lecture 7
Gaseous Mixtures (Non-Reacting)
Sections 13.1 to 13.3 (Cengel & Boles)

## A non-reacting gaseous mixture is a multi-component system in

which the constituents do not react with one another.
No chemical reaction!

Mass fraction
The total mass of a mixture is the sum of the constituents:

m mi
i

00E1

## The ratio mi/m is called the mass fraction

of the component in the mixture.

## Definitions & Basics

Mole
The mole is the amount of substance of a system containing as many
elementary entities as there are atoms in 0.012 kg of C.

## must be specified and may be atoms, molecules, ions,

electrons or other particles or groups.

Example of a mole
One mole of O2 is a mass of 0.032 kg since O has a molar mass of 32.
(compared to 12 for Carbon-12)

00E1

## Equal volumes of all gases contain the same number of

molecules when the volumes are measured under the same
conditions of temperature and pressure.
For any gas, 1 mole contains 6.022 x 1023 elementary entities
1 kmole contains 6.022 x 1026 elementary entities

## Elementary entities could be atoms e.g. for He & Ar, or

molecules e.g. for O2, N2 & H2.

## The kilomole (kmol) is the amount of substance numerically equal

to its molar mass in kg
E.g. 1 kmole of O2 has a mass of 32 kg.

## Definitions & Basics (contd.)

Mole fraction
The total number of moles, n for a mixture is the sum of the moles
of the constituents.
The ratio, ni/n is termed the mole fraction, xi.
xi 1 for a mixture
i

## N.B.: The number of atoms or molecules is directly related to the

volume of the gas!
i.e. the mole fraction is also a measure of the volume fraction!

## Daltons law of partial pressures

The pressure of a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the
pressures of the individual constituents when each occupies a volume
equal to that of the mixture at the same temperature.
The mixture and constituents are assumed to behave as ideal gases!
This is proven by considering a specified volume V and temperature T,

## Amagats law of partial volumes (also known as Leducs Law)

The volume of a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the volumes
of the individual constituents when each exists alone at the pressure
and temperature of the mixture.
Ideal gas behaviour is assumed for the mixture and constituents!
Considering a specified pressure P and temperature T,

Example 1
The percentage volumetric composition of air is as follows: nitrogen (N ) 78.09,
oxygen (O ) 20.95, argon (Ar) 0.96. Given that the molar masses of the
constitutients are 28, 32 and 40, respectively, calculate the % gravimetric
composition. If the mixture is maintained at 150 kPa and 25C, determine the
partial pressure of the oxygen.

Solution:
The mass per kmole of mixture for each constituent, and hence the %
gravimetric composition may be calculated as shown in the following table:

Partial pressure of O2
= vol fraction of O2 x total pressure
= 0.2095 x 150 = 31.44 kPa

Example 2
Two containers, each of volume 0.7 m3, are isolated from each other by a
partition. One contains O2, the other N2, each at 7 bar and 90C. The partition
is removed and mixing occurs. Calculate the end state of the mixture and the
entropy change.

Solution:
Assuming adiabatic conditions, there will be no changes of pressure, P and
temperature, T of the mixture.
no. of moles of O2, nO2 = no. of moles of N2 , nN2
Therefore mole fraction of both O2 and N2 ,
x O2 = x N2 = 0.5 after removal of partition
