Question: a reactor is fed with ammonia and oxygen at 450...

Question details

A reactor is fed with ammonia and oxygen at 450 ° C and 5 bar, where 90% of NH3 reacts to form NO, following the reaction. 4NH3 (g) + 5º2 (g) ----- 4NO (g) + 6H2O (g) Assuming that 1.5 moles of O2 are fed, and 5 moles of N2 diluent per mole of NH3, calculate the exit temperature of the reactor that operates adiabatically. Use a constant Cp value at 1200 ° C to obtain an initial estimate of outlet temperature.
