### Isothermal reactor design

Assignment 3

Example (1)
• Calculate the time necessary to achieve a given conversion X for the irreversible second-order reaction taken place in a Batch reactor
• Solution:
• Step (1) Mole Balance
• The mole baIance on a constant-volume, V = Vo, batch reactor is

Second step is to write the rate law:

• Third step is the Stoichiometry:
• Then combine all the three steps together in one equation
Example (2)
• Calculate the space time necessary to achieve a given conversion X for the irreversible first-order reaction taken place in a CSTR

Solution

Step (1) Mole Balance

Second step is to write the rate law:

• Third step is the Stoichiometry:
• Combine and rearrange:
