Extraction column, Mechanical Engineering

1. An extraction column (sketched below with the known process data) is used to remove acid from an oil stream by contacting it with pure water.  It can be assumed that the oil and water do not mix (i.e. there is no water in the oil streams and no oil in the water streams).
