# Calculate the Temperature of a Reactor Carrying out CSTR Reaction

Question

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

Summary

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.

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
