These reactions occur in an adiabatic CSTR at a constant density of 500 kg/m3. The feed stream contains species A and species B, in a 2 to 1 ratio (stoichiometric ratio for reaction 1) in an inert solvent. The specific heat of the mixture is 2.5 kJ/(kg K). Reaction (1) is slightly exothermic, with Hr,1 = -36 kJ/mol. Reaction (2) is highly ∆ exothermic, with ∆ Hr,2 = -890 kJ/mol. Reaction (3) is endothermic, with Hr,3 = 206 ∆ kJ/mol. The rate constants are given by: k1 = 2×105 exp( -80 kJ mol-1/(RT)) L mol-1 s-1 k2 = 1×1011exp(-200 kJ mol-1/(RT)) L mol-1 s-1 k3 = 2×1015exp(-220 kJ mol-1/(RT)) L mol-1 s-1 (a) For a fixed feed temperature of 810 K, and fixed residence time of 0.2 s, find and plot the steady state temperature and species concentrations in the reactor for feed concentrations of species A from CAo = 2 mol/L to CAo = 5 mol/L. Always keep the feed concentration of B equal to half the feed concentration of A (CBo = ½ CAo). Plot CAo on the horizontal axis. Plot the temperature or composition on the vertical axis. (b) For a feed temperature of 810K, residence time of 0.2 s, and feed concentration CAo = 4 mol/L, analyze the stability of all possible steady states. Note that this problem is a slight variation on problem 2 of HW 10, which many of you were not able to complete. Having the solution to that problem in hand, I am hopeful that you will have much greater success with this one. ...
