Calculate PFR Reactor Volume

Question

The reaction A  2B is to be carried out isothermally and isobarically in a PFR. The entering molar and volumetric flow rates are:

nA0 = 6.5 mol/hr

V0 = 10 dm3/hr

(a)  Calculate the PFR reactor volume necessary to consume 97% of A, assuming A and B are liquids, and:

  1. -rA = k, k=0.05 mol*dm-3hr-1
  2. -rA = kCA, k=0.05 hr-1
  3. -rA = kCA2, k=0.05 dm3mol-1hr-1
  4. -rA = kCACB-1, k=0.05 mol*dm-3hr-1

(b)  Repeat part (a), subpart iii. for A and B being gases.

(c)  Repeat part (a), subpart iii. (A and B are liquids) for the PFR being shaped as:             

where dr = 0.01dL and L/rAverage = 100

 

Summary

The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about calculating PFR reactor volume necessary to consume 97% of reactants.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
