#### Solving Mass Balances using Matrix Algebra

Mass balance calculations describe an engineering problem where mass flows between unit operations and the composition of those flows are partly known and partly unknown. The purpose of the calculation is to mathematically analyse the known flows and compositions to solve for the unknown flows and compositions. Two main types of mass balances are51.
