Kinetics Homogeneous Reaction- In a homogeneous reaction, the reactants are spread evenly throughout the reaction tank. Activated sludge would possibly be an example of a homogeneous reaction whereas trickling filters would not. Batch System- No in and no out. Batch system can be in a complete mix or a plug flow condition. Example- a blender. General Mass Balance (1) Mass In + Mass Produced = Mass Out + Mass Accumulation Rate (2) ) ) QC Vr QC V dc dt i in co out ±= ± Q = Volumetric Flow Rate C = Mass Concentration V = Liquid Volume in Reactor r c = Rate of Mass Formation For Batch System Q = 0 (3) Vr V dC dt = or r dC dt = Consecutive Homogeneous Reactions ABC 12 →  1st order, irreversible µ 11 1 == kC r A µ = unit reaction rate µ 22 2 r B
