Material Balance (Chemical Engineering) question:

300 gmol/s CO, 300 gmol/s H2, 100 gmol/s CO2 are fed to a reactor operating at 200 C and 4000kPa. Two reactions occur:

CO+2H2<–>CH3OH

CO2+H2<–>CO+H2O

The reactor effluent is at chemical reaction and phase equilibrium. Calculate the relative humidity of the outlet stream. To collect methanol product, the outlet stream is sent to a chiller at 20 atm, where only methanol and water are recovered in the liquid phase. What is the maximum permissible temperature for the chiller to operate.
