The solute HCl (component-A, MW = 36.

5) is diffusing through a thin film of water (component-B, MW


= 18.0) at 298 K from point 1 to point 2. The film thickness is 2.0 mm. The concentration of HCl at
point 1 is 12.0 wt% HCl (density = 1060.7 kg/m
3
), and the concentration of HCl at point 2 is 6.0 wt%
HCl (density = 1030.3 kg/m
3
). The diffusion coefficient of HCl in water DAB is 2.5 x 10

/s.
You are given the following equation:

where
NA = flux of component-A (kg-mole/m
2
.s)
NB = flux of component-B (kg-mole/m
2
.s)
CA = concentration of component-A (kg-mole/m
3
)
C = total concentration (kg-mole/m
3
)
Assuming steady-state condition and that water is non-diffusing, show that


Hence calculate the flux of HCl in kg-mole/m
