Unformatted text preview: Example No 10: Modeling Hirerachy System description 1. The reaction: Reversible reaction Forward rate constant k1 and reverse rate constant k2 B A 2 The forward reaction is 1.5 th order in A and the reverse reaction is 1 st order in B 2. Both gases are perfectly mixed 3. The reactor is filled with gases 4. The product stream flow out through a restriction valve 5.
