Unformatted text preview: e.g. . Equa tion (27). is used for analyzing rate data jn a batch reactor as we will see ir Chapters 5 and 9. To determine the time to achieve a specified conversion X, we first sepa rate the variables in Equation (26) as follows This equation is now integrated with the limits that the reaction begins at time equal zero where there is no conversion initially (i.e., t = 0, X = 0). Car rying out the inteption, we obtain the time t necessary to achieve a conver sion X in a batch reactor The longer the reactants are left in the reactor, the greater will be h e conver sion. Equation (26) is the differential Form of the design equation. and Equa tion (29) is the integral form of the design equation for a batch reactor. 2.3 Design Equations for Flow Reactors For a hatch reactor. we saw that conversion increases with time spent in the reactor. For continuousflow systems, this time usually increases with increasing...
