Answer: r A = - k 1 C A + k-1 C B for a BSTR (Batch Stirred Tank Reactor) (2 points for the expression) As long as you have the rate expression above on your homework, you will receive full credit. K-1 = K2... Note that in this case r A = -r B , so an equivalent expression for r B = k 1 C A- k-1 C B. If you want a further explanation of the answers, please read below. The problem statement says “A → B” implying an irreversible reaction, but you should not believe that it is irreversible once you have looked at the data. After an infinite amount of time,...
