Learning Goal: I’m working on a biomedical engineering question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
In an attempt to provide a means of generating NO cheaply, gaseous NH3 is burned with 20% excess
4NH3 + 5O2 → 4NO + 6H2O
The reaction is 70% complete. The NO is separated from unreacted NH3, and the latter recycled as
shown in Figure 1.
a) Calculate the moles of NO formed per
100 moles of NH3 fed.
b) Calculate the moles of NH3 recycled per
mole of NO formed.
