Example of industrial process

  1. Jun 1, 2013 #1
    Hello
    can someone please give me an example of TWO industrial process which uses and depends on gas pressure or the change in gas pressure. Basically did this but instead wrote about gas Laws uses in different things so have to re do it (didn't read the question as we were learning about gas laws ,so thought ,it was on that ). I have to write a report. Thought of doing the Haber process
    don't know if it's right. I'm not asking people to do my work for me just give me the two examples and brief explanation why the depend on gas pressure. I would really appreciate it if you do this for me as soon as possible (i got two days ) please .
    THANK You for taking the time to read this :)

    I don't get how this is not asking people to do your work for you.

    Because i have to write a detailed report and i don't think asking someone for a brief explanation and an example is exactly doing my work

    Fair enough, but it does seem like asking someone to do your research for you. Could be I'm being too picky. I've been known to do that :smile:

    What have you tried on your own to identify a couple such processes?

    i'v tried the Haber process but couldn't d this because it uses Le Chatlier's Principle as i need to talk about Boyle law ,pressure law or Charles law in my report (properly should of mentioned that ).
    i did some research and all that i came up with was hot air balloons ,scuba equipment and combustion engine and i don't think any of these are INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES so i can't do them and still working on finding an example so help will be appreciated if have any examples

    Thank you

    Have you even tried Googling "industrial processes that depend on gas pressure " ?

    I find that quite astounding since it gave me over 10 pages of stuff. I'm sure a lot of it would be useless for you needs but I find it HIGHLY unlikely that there aren't a couple of good examples in there.

    Well i'm still researching as the ones i did find weren't specific or couldn't understand or had nothing to with the and of the gas laws I've studied

    The Haber process is an excellent example. There are compressors used to bring the gases up to reaction pressure, and these certainly depend on the gas laws. There is also high pressure reaction that occurs that is limited by the equilibrium constant for the reaction, and where the design of the (catalytic) reactor makes use of reaction kinetics relationships.

    Other applications you should consider are air conditioning equipment.

    Thank you but i can't use Haber process because i need an Industrial process which uses Boyle law or Charles law or pressure law . If you have any examples of INDUSTRIAL PROCESS using these gas laws please share .
    It would help a lot
    Thank You again

    What laws do you think you use when you design a compressor?
     
  14. Jun 1, 2013 #13
    i'v checked out gas compressor and i think it uses Boyle Law ?
    i think . If this is right then that's one example that i could use for my work.
    Thank you

    I personally worked on design modifications to an ammonia plant, and the gas compressors were turbine compressors designed in three stages, with intercooling. The compression was approximated as adiabatic compression within each stage, and so the general gas law was used, including corrections for non-ideal gas behavior.

    Thank you this was so helpful
