Update: No one else knew how to do it either and the TA’s gave bullshit explanations during office hours. I feel better.
Im so frustrated I want to cry. I feel stupid and Idk how I’m going to graduate college. This seemingly easy problem is so impossible to solve! I can’t even figure out how to write this stupid concentration in respect to time. I’m getting so frustrated and I actually want to cry. I went on Chegg to see if someone asked the same/a similar question and lo and behold! 2 people did, but the answers are all different and make no sense! I’m so angry right now. I just want to do well and learn, but when the homework isn’t related to lesson or anything we did in class, how am I supposed to.. What does a chemical spill have to do with thermodynamics!?!? There is no transfer of energy or heat in benzene evaporating to a steady state concentration. Which, I don’t even see how there could be a steady state concentration when the room has a ventilation rate as well. If both rates are different, there will be no point at which the concentration of benzene in the room is unchanging!!!! Jesus Christ I’m so fucking pissed, how the fuck do I do this problem with no one to help. I don’t even know where to start.
