ECH 146 Winter, 2009 Quiz 1 (consisting of one page only) 1/14/09 CLOSED BOOK TIME ALOTTED: 20 MINUTES 1 . The reaction A B takes place isothermally and with no volume change at steady-state. Two CSTR’s with different volumes were used to collect the data. The feed to the reactor was pure A with a concentration of 1.0 mol/L. As shown in the table below, various concentrations of A in the product stream ( C A ) were observed at various volumetric flow rates of the feed to the variously sized reactors. Use the results to find the residence time required for a change in the concentration of A in a steady-state plug-flow reactor from 1.0 mol/L to 0.2 mol/L if the plug- flow reactor is operated at the same temperature as the CSTR’s.
