Homework Help: Flow injection question, how to calculate Dmax

  1. Oct 18, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Heres the question asked:

    Consider the above FIA apparatus. Calculate the Dmax (as seen by the detector) for the apparatus assuming that a 300uL injection volume results in no dilution (dispersion) of the injected sample by the sample stream line in this system.


    I know you guys cant see the apparatus picture , but i just want to know the right formula to use or someone to lead me to the right direction. Cant find anything in my lecture notes.

    Thanks in advance.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Perhaps just a simple mass balance (as in dilution & mixing) will suffice. But that's just a stab in the dark.
