Exercise 12.2 Subject: Revision of rate-based equations to account for a chemical reaction in the liquid phase. Given: . Rate-based model Eqs. (12-4) to (12-18). Assumption: Perfect mixing in the liquid on a stage. Find: Modified equations for: (a) chemical equilibrium (b) kinetic rate law Analysis: Let the chemical reaction be: ν ν ν ν A B R S A B R S + + where: ν ι = stoichiometric coefficient of component i where it is (+) for products R and S, and (-) for reactants A and B. Let the change in flow rate of component i in the liquid on stage j due to reaction be: Δ n M r i j j i k k j , , = - ± ² ³ ´ µ ν ν (1) where: M j = volumetric holdup of liquid on stage j.
