Question: 3 a construct a stoichiometric table in terms of molar...

Question details

3. (a) Construct a stoichiometric table in terms of molar flow rates (F) for the gas phase oxidation of ethylene (C.H) to ethylene oxide (C.H,O) in a constant- pressure plug flow reactor based on the following initial conditions FC2H40 1.0 mol/s, yo2.o 04,P 1.0 Bar, and T 400 K. (b) If the reaction proceeds to 80 % completion at a constant temperature, what is the concentration of ethylene oxide and the volumetric flow rate in the reactor outlet? (c) If the temperature changes as the reaction proceeds, can the table be constructed in terms of molar flow rate? Molar concentrations? Partial pressures? Explain
