Hydrogenation of Ethylene to Ethane

Question

The hydrogenation of ethylene to ethane has been studied in a differential fixed-bed catalytic laboratory reactor: C2H4 + H2 → C2H6. The feed was a stochiometric mixture of ethane and hydrogen (50/50 mole%) and the reactor operated at 10 atmospheres total pressure. Rate data for fine particles and 3 pellets of different densities are shown in the following table.

Please refer to the PDF document attached for the whole question.

Summary

The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about hydrogenation of ethylene to ethane using differential fixed-bed catalytic laboratory reactor. The questions are about whether the pellets are isothermal and pellets with 124° C, the estimated maximum size of catalyst pellets where pore diffusion would be expected.

    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
