Two different isothermal CSTRs are used for a 1st order liquid phase reaction. Both operate at the same temperature and the same inlet volumetric feed rate and concentration. Conversion is 90% in reactor 1 and 20% in reactor 2. Estimate how the volume of reactor 1 compares to that of reactor 2.
a). V1 = 36V2
b). V1 = 9V2
c). V1 = 4.5V2
d). V1 = 2V2
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about liquid phase reaction in two reactors. The conversion percentage of two reactors has been given and we have estimate the difference between the two reactors.
