Homework Assignment 4 - Due 4 pm March 11 Problem 1 The elementary irreversible liquid-phase reaction A+B C is carried out in a flow reactor. An equal molar feed in A and B enters at 27C and the volumetric flow rate is 2 L/sec. Find the PFR and CSTR
1.
The reaction
A B
is to be carried out isothermally in a continuous-flow reactor. Calculate both CSTR and PFR reactor volumes necessary to consume 80% of A (Hint: CA = 0.2 CA0) when entering molar flow rate is 4 mol/hr and entering volumetric flow rate
