Ethyl acetate (A, liquid) is reacted with excess sodium hydroxide (B, liquid) to form sodium acetate (C, liquid) and ethyl alcohol (D, liquid):
CH3COOC2H2 + NaOH → CH3COONa + C2H5OH
(A) (B) (C) (D)
The reaction is first order with respect to A, and the rate constant is k=0.1 min-1.
You have two CSTR’s and two PFR’s, each with a volume of 2.4 m3. Compare the total fractional conversion of A achieved for each of the following arrangements, when 120 L/min and cA0 = 0.15mol/L:
(a) Two CSTR’s in series
(b) Two PFR’s in series
(c) One CSTR followed by one PFR
(d) One PFR followed by one CSTR
The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about two CSTR and PFR reactions.
