I am an engineer with limited knowledge of the mechanisms with link hardware to software designs, for example in real time control systems, and wonder if you could help me understand what happens.
Can somebody explain to me what the typical process might be; let's say for instance...
I want to calculate the energy of an inlet gas stream (I will add heat later but need to know the rate at which energy is coming into the system [J/s]).
The fluid is air and I can decompose it into molar flow rates of the constituent gases. I now need to use lookups to...
Hope you can offer me some help with this question - I feel close to getting it myself but have spent ages looking at it now.
Question and working so far is attached.
I think what I need to do to enable me to perform the integral is to get theta as a function of time, or instead somehow...
If I set up an experiment as shwon in the schematic attached,
where the effective length of the tubing is 25m (this then goes to a short length of smaller area tubing), and the pressure applied is contant,
what kind of relationship should I expect between pressure drop and flow rate? I...
And, if that is the case, it would also suggest to me that if you aim to increase the pressure of the saturated gas, you can achieve more condensation.
But wouldn't increasing the pressure also cause an undesirable temperature rise - which means you would have to find a way of preventing a...
jambaugh, thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
With reference to the exponential P vs T diagram here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vapour_pressure_of_water
Is it right to say that at points above this line, condensation will occur, whereas superheated steam will result at points below...
For water separation purposes, what's the difference between steam and fully saturated air? I was looking at a certain product:
And I'm not sure if such a thing would be suitable for separating the water from a fully saturated air stream at about 60degC...
The ideal gas law staes that pressure is inversely proportional to volume. Makes sense but I am confused by what happens in a venturi tube, where volume seems to decrease at the same time that pressure decreases also. I understand that dynamic pressure increases in the throat but what am I...
I'm just saying that by cooling down the hot saturated gas, more water will condense at a lower temperature.
Oh and thanks for the beetle example, although i'm not sure that kind of recent material technology will be available to me in my problem!
Hmm..thanks for the reply.
If I'm interested in separating that water and re-using it in a loop (where at the outlet it will once again be a fully saturated gas), how do you think I could here use a desiccant/deliquescent material for the purpose of that separation?
Hope I make sense.
How might one try to separate water from air at high temperature (say, 75degC) - if the gas if fully saturated?
I understand that you should try to cool it down first to do so, but other than putting it though a heat exchanger is there any other approach you can take?
Hi, I'm new to this forum and only have a few months experience with matlab but am getting to know it. Hope you can help me.
I have a for loop which looks like:
for f = a:a:b
I only want to execute this command for the integer values in this loop.
eg. if it was...
