Prior to the initiation of the reaction, the reaction space contains (rig), and (rig), moles of :f. aiidB. respectively. [n addition, the initial. precomloustion s‘olume is If , and the initial temperature is I, . The mass in of the contents of the reaction zone is constant. Heat :2 is exchanged between the reaction zone and the space outside of the reactor. The energy transfers are gos‘enied the first 1mm of thennodynamics. If the piston motion is very slow, the rate at which work is done by the gaseous mixture on the piston is ,mﬁci‘l’fdt) . With this, the first law can be written as d—E=QTf’=Qntdl’i’a'o [2)
