File Information

The program computes the composition of benzene, toluene and p-xylene versus time in all column plates. The steady state values are plotted versus the plate number for all three components. This MATLAB program is adapted from an example given in Chemical Engineering Dynamics by Ingham et al., Wiley-VCH, 2000.

i need the programming solution that can alculate for different temerature ranges.the question is as follows.
calculatethe number of kilo-calories requiredto heat from 5000 k to 1500 k ,1 cubic meter (1 atm 0degree ceti grade)of gas having the following composision by volume
carbon dioxide 70%
nitrogen 27%
oxygen 2%
hydrogen 1%
thesecific correlation is given by
cp=a + bT +cT^2
carbon dioxide a=6.339 b=10.14*10^-3 c=-3.45*10^-6
nitrogen a=6.457 b=1.389*10^-3 c=-0.069*10^-6
oxygen a=6.117 b=3.167*10^-3 c=-1.005*10^-6
hydrogen a=6.946 b=-0.169*10^-3 c= 0.4757*10^-6
