question #2 (3.1.12) :- 

100 kg of sugar are disolved in 500 kg of water in a shallow open cylindrical vessel. after standing for 10 days , 300 kg of sugar solution are removed. would you expect the remaining sugar solution to have a mass of 300 kg ?


question #3 ( please see attachment ) !!!!!!!!!!!!


question #4 (3.2.9) :-

three gaseous mixtures, A,B & C , with the compositions listed in the table are blended into a single mixture 

Gas     A       B       C

CH4    25     25      60
