In this simulation, a step-by-step procedure uses the Hunter-Nash method for liquid-liquid extraction to determine the number of equilibrium stages needed to obtain a desired raffinate composition. In each step, move a point to its correct composition and click "Submit answer" to see the correct answer. Then click "Next" to go to the next step. Click "New problem" to restart the procedure and generate a new set of conditions.
This simulation was created in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, at University of Colorado Boulder for LearnChemE.com by Rachael Baumann under the direction of Professor John L. Falconer and was converted to HTML5 by Patrick Doyle, with additional contributions by Neil Hendren. This simulation was prepared with financial support from the National Science Foundation.
