What value of Dp/L is required to produce a volumetric flow rate of 1 liter/s of this solution in a horizontal pipelind inner diameter 2 cm ? ( hint: you are required to find power law model parameters n & K first to solve the problem!) Q5 a) For a freezing point depression of 0.5 o C of a solution of 1 gm of Polyethylene ( M2=500) in 100 gm of camphor (Tf=178.4 o C, M1=152), find the latent heat of fusion for camphor ΔHf! b) The Voigt ( or Kelvin) element of representing viscoelastic behavior of polymers resembles the Maxwell elements except that the spring and dashpot are in parallel rather than in series. Show that the creep compliance of such an element is given by Where E is the Modulus and η is the viscosity! 3
