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. CSTR We know that, Volume of CSTR can be calculated by the equation 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.8, 0.2 , 4 / , 0.0001sec 4 0.2 20 A A A A A A A A A F X V where X C C F mol hour k r F mol C v lit - = = = = = - = = = 3 0 4 0.8 222.2 0.0001 3600 0.2 0.2 A A A F X V dm r × = = = - × × × PFR Mole balance for a differential element of volume dV Input = Out put +Disappearance of A due to reaction ( 29 A A A A Input F Output F dF Disappearance of A r dV = = + = -
