The liquid flow rate in moles per day for a given inlet stream can be determined from Equation 3-17. In our example, for an inlet…

Remembering that the weight of each component is the number of moles of that component times its molecular weight (pounds = MW X moles), the…

The molecular weight of the liquid stream is calculated from the weighted average liquid component molecular weight given by: This is calculated in Table 3-3.…

If the flow rate of the inlet stream is known in moles per day then the number of moles per day of gas flow can…

The molecular weight of the stream is calculated from the weighted average gas molecular weight given by: The molecular weight of the gas stream of…

In the absence of any laboratory data, correlations exist that relate viscosity and temperature, given the oil gravity. The following equation relating viscosity, gravity, and…

This property of a fluid indicates its resistance to flow. It is a dynamic property, in that it can be measured only when the fluid…

Specific gravity of a liquid is the ratio of the density of the liquid at 60°F to the density of pure water. API gravity is…
