Unformatted text preview: 1 at 30ºC, the usual operating temperature. Calculate the total holding time ( τ ) for 95 % conversion of A for the following two arrangements: a. Three well stirred tanks of equal volume in series. b. One larger well stirred tank followed by a second of 10 % of the volume of the first. If one tank broke down while operating arrangement (a) above, what would be the required temperature of the second tank of the remaining two tanks so that 95 % conversion of A is maintained. The energy of activation (E A ) is 31,500 J mol1 and the gas constant R = 8.314 J mol1 K1 ....
