13. The feed of a process simulator is 10 mole with enthalpy 2 J/mole, the heat input is 15 J, and the work performed is 10 J, what will be the product enthalpy if mole of the product are 5?
a) 2 J/mole
b) 3 J/mole
c) 4 J/mole
d) 5 J/mole
View answer

Answer: d
Explanation: Energy balance, 5*H = 10*2 + 15 – 10 = 25, => H = 5 J/mole.
