Set 2
A pressure vs. Volume analysis was done to determine the bubble points for Oil A, Oil B and water, with CO2
Oil A
Represented in Fig. 7 below, the Pressure vs. Volume behavior of Oil A is displayed, the graph is separated into two different sections as Oil A transitions from a single phase fluid to a two phase fluid, the transition occurs at 800 psi which represents the bubble point for Oil A. Fig XX. Pressure vs. Volume Oil A
Analysis was done on the relationship between compressibility of oil vs. pressure. As shown in the figure below, compressibility increases linearly as pressure decreases from 2500psi to the bubble point. At the bubble point, as pressure decreases now the compressibility increases exponentially. The change in gradient occurs as there is gas present in the fluid. Fig XX.

) and one below the bubble point was used. As shown in the figure, above the bubble point as pressure increases Bo decreases. Below the bubble point, as pressure increases toward the bubble point, so does formation volume factor although with a higher gradient than compared to the one below the bubble point. Fig XX. Pressure vs. Rs and Bo Oil A
Oil B
In the figure below, the Pressure vs. Volume for Oil B is presented. Along with Oil A, volume increases linearly as pressure decreases. The two relationships appear to be similar, although with different gradients. The bubble point as displayed in the figure below occurs at 200psi. Fig XX. Pressure vs. Volume Oil B
Using Eq. 3, the compressibility of Oil B was calculated against pressure as shown in the figure below. Compressibility above the bubble point increases with decreasing pressure, although difficult to interpret as the gradient is very small. At 200psi, compressibility jumps suddenly, indicating the change in gradient. Reason being the bubble point was not reached until the pressure was reduced from 2500psi to

    The effect of the Schmidt number is highlighted in Figs.7 and 12 for the temperature and concentration distributions, respectively. The relative effect of momentum diffusion to particles diffusion is presented by Schmidt number. For , the particles diffusivity dominates. Decreasing the particles diffusivity produces an increase in the temperature gradients and means an increase in Schmidt number. So, it is observed that Schmidt number enhances the temperature.…

    4. The optimization in calcination temperature of CuMnOx (CuMn8) precursor The optimum calcination temperature of the CuMnOx catalyst was 300oC and further increasing the calcination temperature the activity of the catalyst was decreases. There was a correlation between the surface area and the calcination temperature of the catalyst. When the calcination temperature of the CuMnOx catalyst was increased above 300oC, the surface area was decreases and its analysis by BET measurement. The crystallinity was also increased as the increasing of the calcination temperature of the precursor, therefore the diffraction peaks at the XRD analysis was more crystalline phases produced by calcination at (200 - 400oC) temperature.…

    4.5: Effect of feed flow rate (Fgr) on yield. Gas oil – y1 (wt %), gasoline – y2 (wt %), light gases – y3 (wt %) and coke - y4 (wt %). Operating Conditions: Tf = 600K; Trg = 960K; Fgr = 33.9Kg/s: 5: 67.8Kg/s; Frc = 480Kg/s. 4.2.5 Effect of Catalyst flow rate (Frc) on product distribution Increase in the catalyst flow rate means the catalyst spends less time in the riser, reduction in deactivation of catalyst, catalyst average activity in the riser will be higher and the cracking reactions will be more intensive. These will lead to an increase in the conversions of gas oil and subsequent increase in the yield of the products.…

    Fepo4 Temperature

    With increasing temperature, the α-phase at low temperature evolves to β-phase at high temperature to β quartz type FePO4. With increasing disorders because of increasing energy and high amplitude vibration in α-quartz, this non-physical behaviour promotes the α-β transition. The angle and the length of bonds change when there is a tetrahedral distortion. And tetrahedral tilt happens when only the angle changes and bond length doesn’t. When temperature reaches 980K, the α-β transition happens with Fe-O-P bridging angles increase and tetrahedral tilt angels decrease.…

    The principal contribution to the thermal expansion arises from the angular variations manifested by the changes in the two symmetrically independent inter-tetrahedral Fe-O-P bridging angles and the correlated tilt angles. The temperature dependence of the volume strongly follows the behavior of the average θ and δ angles as a function of temperature and there is a preferential expansion along alpha. The c/a ratio decreases from 2.2356 at 294 Kelvin to 2.2069 at 969 Kelvin. The initial decrease of the c/a ratio is in fact greater than that observed for any alpha quartz isotype due to the greater average angular variations in…

    1. Methyl Red removal with 0.2 g/L Fe Nanoparticle at different contact time 4.1.2 Unit Removal Capacity (URC) at different concentrations of Methyl Red Unit removal capacity is the amount of dye removed per unit weight of iron dosage.The decolorization efficiency (η%) of MO and the unit removal capacity (mg/g) were calculated using the following URC= C0-Ce/m Where C0 and Ce are the initial and equilibrium MO concentrations (mg/L) in the solution respectively, m is the amount of nZVI/BC (g/L). The figure showing that the Methyl Red concentration increases the unit removal capacity also increases. As the concentration of dye dosages increase the removal efficiency decrease. Max.…

    With A = 52.4, and B =119.8. Moreover, some previous works overlooked that the increase in temperature is always accompanied by the increase in water vapour pressure, and lower CO2 partial pressure respectively. Consequently, according to Henry’s law, the amount of dissolved CO2 in water is also decreased. Thus, the increase in temperature will increase the kinetics of precipitation, and also reduce the supersaturation of FeCO3 as a result of lesser amount of dissolved CO2 in the water. B.…

    The symmetry of FePO4 at α-phase is Trigonal as compared to the hexagonal symmetry of FePO4 at β-phase. Cell parameter of FePO4 increases with much significance as the temperature increases, causing volume to increase also. Preferential expansion in a direction is also observed, causing a decrease in c/a ratio in accordance to the temperature increase. The Fe-O-P bond will also increase in size noticeably. As FePO4 enters β-phase, the change in both bond distance and angle will not be very noticeable in accordance to the change in temperature.…

    Ionization energy increases when you start to remove electrons from an inner shell. In other words, when the principal energy level decreases, ionization energy increases. It also increases when one moves from left to right across the periodic table because there is more energy required to remove electrons from the “p” block than the “s” block. The trend is that ionization energy increases to the top right corner of the periodic table and decreases towards the bottom left. The next trend is known as electronegativity.…

    With that being said, both have the same extent of symmetry and the Atoms drawings are rather similar. Furthermore, the rise in temperature shows that the cell parameter will increase greatly, leading to an overall increase in volume. However, as temperature rises up to 980K, there will be a great difference in terms of the structure of the crystals. This would thus lead to a decrease in the c/a ratio as temperature increases, showing an inverse relationship between the two. Hence, when the temperature rises from low (240K) to a high of (980K) the refined structural parameters would thus change from α to β.…
