An exothermic liquid phase reaction A → 2C is conducted in a 125L batch reactor that operates isothermally at 125°C due to careful control of cooling fluid in the reactor jacket. Given the following:
(-rA) = kAcA, with kA = 1.2 X 106e-(750011)min-1
CAo = 1.25 mol/L
Cp = 4.0Jg-lK-1
p= 0.85 g/L
(-âˆ†HRA) = 120kJpermol of A
td = 25% of reaction time
a. How much time is required to achieve 95% conversion of A?
b. What is the rate of production of C per batch?
c. What is the annual production rate of C, if the facility operates 24/7, for 350 days per year?
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and the question is about an exothermic liquid phase reaction. The time taken for the 95% of the reaction to complete, the rate of the production per batch and the annual production have to be calculated based on the conversion rates of the chemical reaction.
