The elementary gas phase reaction 2A → 3B is carried out in a CSTR. The feed is pure A at 350 K with a flowrate of 4.0 L/s and 0.14 mol/s. The reaction vessel is heated by saturated steam (steam temperature = 170°C) within a heating coil (UA = 25 J/s-K). The exit stream is a 25% A / 75% B mixture by volume. What is the temperature in the reactor?
Assume HAO (298) = -50kJ/mol
HBO (298) = -30kJ/mol
CPA = 30J/mol-K
CPB = 15J/mol-K
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about elementary gas phase reaction carried out in CSTR. The temperature of the reactor has been measured. The calculations have been given in the solution in detail.
