Calculations TO CALCULATE COLUMN DIAMETER Since larger flow quantities are at the bottom for an absorber, the diameter will be chosen to accommodate the bottom conditions. To calculate Gas density Avg. molecular weight = If gas flow rate is given in kg/h Gas in = 0.009432183 Kmol/s kmol = mass / mol wt = (kmol/s) x T in kelvin x 1.0 atm x 22.4 273 pr. In atm 1 3 = 0.234499 m /s
