Four major areas ( : covered in the following example problems): Non-isothermal reactors ( ) Biological reactors ( ) Ligand/receptor binding kinetics Surface reactions/catalysis kinetics Go over the first problem in PS7 to review the ligand/receptor binding kinetics and the first problem in PS8 to review the surface reactions/catalysis kinetics. Problem 1. The irreversible liquid phase reaction A R + S is carried out in a CSTR. The reaction is first order in A. The feed stream is available at a temperature of 298 K. k = 1.7 x 10 -4 s -1 at 298 K. E a = 41.87 x 10 3 kJ/kmol Δ H R (298) = -167.5 x 10 3 kJ/kmol C A0 = 2.0 kmol/m 3 (Feed is pure A) V = 0.5 m 3 ρ = 1050 kg/m 3 Cp = 4.19 kJ/kg/K These values can be considered to be constant over the used interval of concentration and temperature. The CSTR is made of carbon steel and weighs 800 kg. Cp ,steel = 502.4 J/kg/K Calculate: a) Conversion and heat duty for an isothermal reactor operating at 298 K. b) Conversion and reactor temperature for an adiabatic reactor with inlet temperature
