The elementary irreversible gas-phase reaction, A → R + S, is carried out isothermally in a packed-bed (plug-flow) catalytic reactor. Pure A enters the reactor at a volumetric flow rate of 20 L/s at a pressure of 10 atm and a temperature of 450 K. At that temperature, the value of the specific rate constant is 1.33 L/kg.cat-s. Calculate the mass of catalyst required to achieve 90 percent conversion of A.
