Unformatted text preview: e component balance on the nonreact ing species in the first tank looks like: d ( rVc1 ) = rqc  rqc 0

d t The densit y, vo lume and the vo lumetric flowrate are constants, thus, the equat ion reduces to: V dc 1
= q 0  c ) (c 1
d t This is a linear equation, so one can rewrite it in deviat ion variable form trivially, V dc 1
= q 0  c ) (c 1
d t We are interested in the transfer funct ion that relates the exit concentration to the inlet concentration. Taking the Laplace transform yields, V
sc ( = c (  c ( 1 s)
0 s)

q c1 ( s )

Recognizing that all tanks are the same, we can generalize to the fo llowing relat ionships: c ( s 1 i)

c 1 ( s (V / q + 1 )s
