Homework #2 ChE 361 Spring 2010 Problem 1. Consider the following matrix: A = " - 4 - 3 2 1 # 1. Find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors. 2. Verify your results with Matlab. 3. Do these eigenvectors provide a basis for R 2 . Why? Problem 2. Consider a CSTR in which the following reactions occur: A B, B C, C B. The reaction rates per unit volume of the three reactions are r 1 = k 1 C A , r 2 = k 2 C B , and r 3 = k 3 C C respectively. The reactor has constant volumetric flow rate q and pure component A feed at concentration C Ai . The volume of the reactor is denoted V . 1. Perform steady-state mass balances on the three reaction species to obtain the following algebraic equation system: q V ( C Ai - C A ) - k 1 C A = 0 , - q V C B + k 1 C A - k 2 C B + k 3 C C = 0 , - q V C C + k 2 C B - k 3
