Choose the Best Reactor for the Given Equations


Which rector system would give the higher selectivity for product C. Both reactions are exothermic and feed temperature is 100° C.

A + B → C     rC = K3CACB2        E1 = 60KJ/mol
A + B → D     rD = K2CACB          E2 = 90KJ/mol

a.    CSTR at constant temperature of 100° C
b.    Adiabatic CSTR
c.    Semibatch: Feed B to reactor containing A
d.    3 CSTRs in series, each at constant temperature of 100° C
e.    3 CSTRs in series, each adiabatic



The short answer question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about reactor system giving higher selectivity for a product with exothermic and feed temperature of 100° C.

    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
