Unformatted text preview: With the same reaction, feed composition, feed flow rate, and temperature, at what conversion is the volume of a steady-state CSTR twice that of a PFR? _____________________________________________________________________________________ Some equations that may help: Ideal Reactor type Design Equation (Mol balance equation) Steady-state CSTR r j = ( F j – F j0 )/ V Steady-state PFR r j = dF j / dV Perfectly mixed batch r j = (1/ V )( dN j / dt ) Notation: r j is rate of reaction of species j. F j is molar flow rate of species j. Subscript 0 refers to inlet. N j is number of moles of j. V is volume; t is time....
