Hey Guys, this is kind of an engineering type problem but it's only the math portion. I have a column of concentration in gal/MMSCF (C). This is the concentration of hydrocarbons in the natural gas stream. MMSCF = Million standard cubic feet. I also have a column of flow rates, MMSCF/day (F). This is the flow rate of natural gas.

When I multiply the two, I get how much hydrocarbons are removed from the gas, theoretically. We also record the amount of hydrocarbons we collect. This amount compared to the theoretical amount are very much off, like 50%-60%.

So my equation is L (theoretical) = C * F

How would I created another equation, ex L = k*C*F, where k is some constant that compensates for the difference between the theoretical liquid value and the actual liquid value? My question is, how would I find that constant?

Any help is appreciated, thanks.
