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
