Homework Help: Mass flux and mass fractions

  1. Nov 19, 2016 #1
    I am working on a experiment that injects CO2 and H2 at a specified mass flux. The mass fraction of each is 0.5. Given the total mass flux of the combined species, how would I find the mass flux of each individual specie? I was thinking it would just be a simple halving since the mass fractions are 0.5 each.

    And?

    Oh I was wondering if that's correct? It seems off intuitively, but I can't explain why.
