Unformatted text preview: elementary gas phase reaction is A + B → C + D The reaction is carried at 400 K and the inlet pressure is maintained as 20 atm. The composition of feed is A : B = 1 : 2 with a total flow rate of reactants of 5 L/h. Other data given are the pressure factor α = 0.1/lb cat, and k = 13.437 L 2 /moles·h. If the final conversion is 70%, what is necessary amount of catalyst (Hint, W>5) ? 4. A semi-batch reactor is used to carry out the following elementary reaction A + B → C @ k = 0.2 ft 3 /lb mole·min The initial volume of the reactor is 100 ft 3 , and it initially contains 2 lb mole/ft 3 of A without B. Starting at = t , 5 ft 3 /min of a solution containing 0.5 lb mole of B is fed into the reactor. How many mole of C are present in the reactor after half an hour?...
