Please provide step by step explanation.

The liquefaction of kentucky coal number 9 was carried

out in a slurry reactor. The coal particles which were less than 200 mesh, were dissolved in a 250 degrees celsius vacuum cut of recycle oil saturated with hydrogen at 400 degrees Celsius. Consider the following reaction sequence






All reactions are first order. Calculate the molar flow rate of each species as a function of space time in plug flow reactor and a CSTR

Entering coal concentration= 2kmol/m^3

Entering flow rate 10dm^3/min

At 400 celsius, k1=0.12 min^-1, K2=0.046min^-1,K3=0.020min^-1,K4=0.034min^-1,k5=0.04min^-1
