10.37 Chemical and Biological Reaction Engineering, Spring 2007 Prof. William H. Green Lecture 11: Non-isothermal Reactors, equilibrium limitations, and stability This lecture covers: Derivation of energy balances for ideal reactors; equilibrium conversion, adiabatic and non-adiabatic reactor operation.
