There are 2 CSTRs in series. The conversion after the first reactor is 35% and after the second reactor is 72%. Given the following rate vs. conversion data, determine the volume of reactor 1(V1) and the volume of reactor 2 (V2).
X 0 0.13 0.21 0.35 0.54 0.72
FA0/-rA(m)3 1.2 1.5 1.9 2.8 4.6 7.1
a) V1 = 0.73 m3, V2 = 2.6 m3
b) V1 = 0.73 m3, V2 = 7.1 m3
c) V1 = 0.84 m3, V2 = 5.1 m3
d) V1 = 0.98 m3, V2 = 2.6 m3
e) V1 = 0.98 m3, V2 = 7.1m3
f) V1 = 1.08 m3, V2 = 5.1m3
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and the question is about 2 continuous stirred tank reactors in series. The conversion rates of the two reactors need to be calculated.
