An aqueous feed solution of 1000 kg/h of acetic acid-water solution contains 30.0 wt% acetic acid and is to be extracted in a countercurrent multistage process with pure isopropyl ether to reduce the acid concentration to 2.0 wt % acid in the final raffinate. (a) Calculate the minimum solvent flow rate that can be used. (b) If 2500 kg/h of ether solvent is used, determine the number of theoretical stages required. (Note: It may be necessary to replot on an expanded scale the concentrations at the dilute end.)
