Unformatted text preview: Homework #8 ChE 361 Spring 2010 Problem 1. Consider an isothermal, continuous stirred tank reactor in which the following ir- reversible reaction occurs: A B . Let C A and C B denote the molar concentrations of the reaction species. The reaction rate constant is denoted k , and the reaction rate per unit volume is: r = kC A . Let V denote the constant reactor volume, and q denote the volumetric flow rate of the inlet and outlet streams. The reactor is fed with pure component A at a molar concen- tration C Af . Consider the following constant operating conditions: C Af = 1, and V = 1. To determine the unknown reaction rate constant k , steady-state experiments was performed at three different volumetric flow rates. The following data { q, C A } was obtained: { . 5 , . 35 } , { 1 . , . 45 } , { 2 . , . 70 } . 1. Use the the steady-state component balance and the experimental data to derive the fol- lowing overdetermined set of linear algebraic equations: . 350 . 450...
