The molar liquid-to-gas ratio required for this separation is computed as LM/GM = A0 x K = 0.89 x 0.833 = 0.74.
We note that this example is the analytical solution to the graphical design problem shown in Fig. 14-11, which therefore is the design diagram for this system.
The simplified design calculations presented in this section are intended to reveal the key features of gas absorption involving multi-component systems. It is expected that rigorous computations, based upon the methods presented in Sec. 13, will be used in design practice. Nevertheless, it is valuable to study these simplified design methods and examples since they provide insight into the key elements of multicomponent absorption.
