# Determine the Volume of two CSTRs

Question

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

Summary

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.

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
