### Would this method be acceptable for income-tax purposes

Assignment Help Chemical Engineering
##### Reference no: EM131061569

A property has an initial value of \$50,000, service life of 20 years, and final salvage value of \$4000. It has been proposed to depreciate the property by the text-book declining-balance method. Would this method be acceptable for income-tax purposes if the income-tax laws do not permit annual depreciation rates greater than twice the minimum annual rate with the straight-line method?

#### What is the conversion for a 300 k operating temperature

For a reactor space time of 10 min, what is the conversion for a 300 K operating temperature? What is the conversion at 500 K? (Remember: the equilibrium constant depends on

#### Calculate the heat loss per unit length for a calm day

For the conditions of part (a), calculate the heat loss with a 20-mm-thick layer of insulation (k = 0.08 W/m· K). Would the heat loss change significantly with an appreciabl

#### Calculate the enthalpy and entropy of the mixture

A batch of natural has contains 93% by mol methane with the rest being mostly ethane. Use the SRK equation to estimate the volume of tank needed to store 100 kg of this natu
