The gas phase reaction A → 3B has an elementary rate law with k = 5 min-1 at 50°C. A feed stream contains 75% A and 25% inert, with a total flow rate of 30L/min. The concentration of A in the feed is 0.2mol/L. What size PFR is needed to reach 60% conversion. Assume the reactor is operated isothermally at 50°C.
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about gas phase reaction with given elementary rate law. The PFR size for the conversion and the operations of the reactor have been answered in the solution in detail.
