Calculate the Maximum Possible Conversion Rate for an Isothermal and Isobarical Reaction


You have been put in charge of the conceptual design for a process whereby A → 2B, a second order liquid phase reaction that occurs isothermally at 340K and isobarically at 2 bar. Due to budget constraints, you have to make use of old equipment already on site. In this case, you have a 90L CSTR and a 70L PFR available to you. What is the maximum possible conversion for this system, given:

FAo = 2.5mol/min
CAo = 0.40mol/L
kA = 0.50Lmol-1min-1


The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and the question is about an isothermal at 340K and isobarical reaction at 2 bar. A 90L CSTR and 70 L PFR are available and we need to determine the maximum possible conversion for this system.

    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
