2 COURSE OBJECTIVES The objectives for the students of this course are: 1. To understand the importance of Reaction Kinetics and Reactor Design in Chemical Processing and to be familiar with industrially important reactions and reactor types. 2. To be able to make material balances for different types of chemical reactors and to use material balances to size a reactor for a given product specification. 3. To understand the concept of a rate expression and how a rate expression can be deduced from a reaction mechanism and by analyzing experimental data for batch and differential reactors. 4.
