# Air separation produced 500 m3 of nitrogen. How many liters of oxygen and carbon dioxide were obtained from this? Given: V (nitrogen) = 500m3, ϕ (nitrogen) = 78%, or 0.78, ϕ (oxygen) = 21%, or 0.21, ϕ (carbon dioxide) = 0.03%, or 0.0003 ,
Find: V (oxygen) – ?, V (carbon dioxide) -?
Decision.
From the formula for finding the volume fraction of nitrogen ϕ (nitrogen) = V (nitrogen) / V (air), we find the volume of air:
V (air) = V (nitrogen) / ϕ (nitrogen) = 500 m3: 0.78 = 641.03 m3.
We calculate the volume of oxygen:
V (oxygen) = ϕ (oxygen) ● V (air) = 641.03 m3 ● 0.21 = 134.6 m3.
We calculate the volume of carbon dioxide:
V (carbon dioxide) = ϕ (carbon dioxide) ● V (air) = 641.03 m3 ● 0.0003 = 0.192 m3.
Answer: V (oxygen) = 134.6 m3, V (carbon dioxide) = 0.192 m3. Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime.
