Question: 1 ammonia is oxidized to nitric oxide in the following...

Question details

1. Ammonia is oxidized to nitric oxide in the following reaction: 4NH3 + 5O2 4NO + 6H2O a. Calculate the ratio (lb-mole O2 reacted/lb-mole NO formed). b. If ammonia is fed to a continuous reactor at a rate of 100 kmol/h of NH3 what oxygen feed rate would correspond to 40% excess O2. c. If 50 kg of ammonia and 100 kg of oxygen are fed to the batch reactor, determine the limiting reactant, the percent excess, and the extent of reaction and mass of NO produced (kg) if the reaction proceeds to completion.
