42 Conversion and Reactor Sizing Chap. 2 The entering molar flow rate is where C, = entering concentration, mol /dm3 y, = entering mole fraction of A P, = entering total pressure, e.g., kPa PA, = .v,,Po = entering partial pressure of A, e.g., kPa To = entering temperature, K R = ideal gas constant kPa ' see Appendix B mol * K 1 The size of the reactor will depend on the flow rate, reaction kinetics, reactor conditions, and desired conversion. Let's first calculate the entering molar flow rate. Exumpk 2-1 U~ittg the Ideal Gas Law to Caicuhfe CAl and FA* A gas of pure A at 830 kPa (8.2 atm) enters a reactor
