1. The reaction A → B is to be carried out isothermally in a continuous-flow reactor. Calculate both CSTR and PFR reactor volumes necessary to consume 80% of A (Hint: C A = 0.2 C A0 ) when entering molar flow rate is 4 mol/hr and entering volumetric flow rate is 20 dm 3 /hr assuming the reaction rate –r A is kC A with k = 0.0001 s-1.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
