# Calculate the Conversion Rate of an Exothermic Liquid Phase Reaction

Question

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
UAc=100W/K
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?

Summary

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.

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
