A gas stream contains 18.0mole% hexane and the remainder nitrogen, the stream flows to a condenser, where its temperature is reduced and some of the hexane is liquefied. The hexane mole fraction in the gas stream leaving the condenser is 0.0500. Liquid hexane condensate in recovered at a rate of 1.50L/min.

(a) What is the flow rate of the gas stream leaving the condenser in mol/min?

(b) What percentage of the hexane entering the condenser is recovered as aliquid?
