Heat Exchange Variable Ta Co-current . Heat Exchange Variable Ta Counter Current Adiabatic Operation Elementary liquid phase reaction carried out in a CSTR The feed consists of both inerts I and Species A with the ratio of inerts to the species A being 2 to 1. (a) Assuming the reaction is irreversible, A → B, (K C = 0) what reactor volume is necessary to achieve 80% conversion? (b) If the exiting temperature to the reactor is 360K, what is the corresponding reactor volume? (c) Make a Levenspiel Plot and then determine the PFR reactor volume for 60% conversion and 95% conversion. Compare with the CSTR volumes at these conversions (d) Now assume the reaction is reversible, make a plot of the equilibrium conversion as a function of temperature between 290K and 400K.
