CHAPTER 3 : CHAPTER 3 BASIC CONCEPTS
OF MASS AND ENERGY BALANCES
Slide 2: Mass Balance Variations of mass contained whitin the control volume at time “t” Total mass flow entering the system at time “t” Total mass flow leaving the system at time “t” = - Where :
mcv : mass change
mi : inputs
me: outputs mcv = mi - me
Slide 3: Example : Mass Balance Mass balance for a system with chemical reaction
A fuel oil is analyzed and is found to contain 87% weight carbon, 11% hydrogen and 1.4% sulfur, with the remainder being non-combustible (inert) material.
The oil is burned with 20% excess air (based on complete combustion of the carbon to CO2, the hydrogen to H2O and the sulphur to SO2). The oil is burned completely, but 5% of the carbon forms CO instead of CO2.
Calculate the molar composition of the exhaust gas leaving the burner.
Slide 4: Example : Mass Balance NOTE :
INPUT RATE = Qs * Cs + Qw * Cw
OUTPUT RATE = Qm * Cm = (Qs + Qw) * Cw
DECAY RATE = KCV
INPUT RATE = OUTPUT RATE + DECAY RATE
Energy Balance for Closed Systems : Energy Balance for Closed Systems Conservation of energy principle: Time interval variation of the total energy in a system Net energy transfered across the system boundary by heat transfer into the system Net energy transfered across the system boundary by work done by the system = - INPUT OUTPUT
Slide 6: Where :
KE = Kinetic Energy change
PE = Gravitational Potential Energy change
U = Internal Energy change
Q = Heat
W = Work KE + PE + U = Q – W All parameter mentioned above, are in Joules, Btu or Calories. Total Energy Variation
Slide 7: Characteristics of Energy Balance Calculations – W is the work transfered from the surroundings to the system.
+ Q is the heat energy transfered into the system from the surroundings.
Therefore :
+ W is the work done by the system released into the surroundings
- Q is the heat energy transfered into the surroundings from the system
Slide 8: Example : Energy Balance A mixture of 1 kmol of gaseous methane and 2 kmol of oxygen initially at 25°C and 1 atm burns completely in a closed, rigid container. Heat transfer occurs until the products are cooled to 900K. Determine the amount of heat transfer in kJ. 1 kmol CH4 (g)

Slide 9: Assumptions :
The contents of the closed, rigid container are taken as the system
Kinetic, potential energy effects and work = 0.
Combustion is complete
The reactants and products each form ideal gas mixtures.
The initial and final states are equilibrium states Example : Energy Balance
