Department of Chemical Engineering Fall, 2011 University of California, Santa Barbara 1 CHE 140B Problem Set No. 1 Due Tuesday, October 4, 2011 Problem 1: Smith, van Ness, Abbott, 13.18(a) The production of 1,3-butadiene can be carried out by the dehydrogenation of 1- butene: 25 2 2 2 2 C H CH=CH ( ) H C=CHCH=CH ( ) H ( ) , gg g  Side reactions are suppressed by the introduction of steam. If equilibrium is attained at 950 K and 1 bar and if the reactor product contains 10 mol% 1,3- butadiene, find the mole fractions of the other species in the product gas. Problem 2: Smith, van Ness, Abbott, 13.29 Oil refineries frequently have both H 2 S and SO 2 to dispose of. The following reaction suggests a means of getting rid of both at once: 22 2 2H S ( ) SO ( ) 3S ( ) 2H O ( ) . s g For reactants in the stoichiometric proportion, estimate the percent conversion of each reactant if the reaction comes to equilibrium at 450 °C and 8 bar.
