# Consider a mixture of hydrocarbons that consists of 60 percent (by volume) methane, 30 percent ethane, and 10 percent propane. After passing through a separator, the mole fraction of the propane is reduced to 1 percent. the mixture pressure before and after the separation is 100 kPa. Determine the change in the partial pressures of all the constituents in the mixture.

Explanation:

mole fraction of propane after passing through the separator is

mole fractions of ethane and methane after passing through separator are:

Change in partial pressures then can be written as:

where and are mole fractions after and before passing through the separator

Hence,

Cody’s car accelerates from 0m/s to 45 m/s northward in 15 seconds. What is the acceleration of the car

3 m/s²

Explanation:

Acceleration is calculated as :

a= Δv/ t

where ;

Δv = change in velocity

Δv = 45 - 0 = 45  m/s

t= 15 s

a= 45 /15

a= 3 m/s²

At its current short-run level of production, a firm's average variable costs equal $20 per unit, and its average fixed costs equal$30 per unit. Its total costs at this production level equal $2,500. A. What is the firm's current output level? B. What are its total variable costs at this output level? C. What are its total fixed costs? ### Answers Answer and Explanation: The computation is shown below Total average cost + total variable cost = total cost Let number of output be x So, Total fixed average cost = x ×$30

Total variable cost = x × $15 Total cost =$2,500

Therefore,

$20 × x +$30 × x = $2,500 50 × x =$2,500

x = 50

Now the total variable cost is

= 50 × $20 =$1,000

And, the fixed cost is

= 50 × $30 =$1,500

(A) Because the angle of twist of a material is often used to predict its shear toughness

Explanation:

In engineering, torsion is the solicitation that occurs when a moment is applied on the longitudinal axis of a construction element or mechanical prism, such as axes or, in general, elements where one dimension predominates over the other two, although it is possible to find it in diverse situations.

The torsion is characterized geometrically because any curve parallel to the axis of the piece is no longer contained in the plane initially formed by the two curves. Instead, a curve parallel to the axis is twisted around it.

The general study of torsion is complicated because under that type of solicitation the cross section of a piece in general is characterized by two phenomena:

1- Tangential tensions appear parallel to the cross section.

2- When the previous tensions are not properly distributed, which always happens unless the section has circular symmetry, sectional warps appear that make the deformed cross sections not flat.
