Question: an isothermal constant volume batch reactor was used to carry...

Question details

An isothermal constant volume batch reactor was used to carry out multiple runs of the liquid phase reaction (A + 2B = C)

(A) use the available information to confirm that the reaction is elementary

(B) find the Activation energy and Arrhenius constant

(C) Plot the appropriate graph (on excel ) and demonstrate how the conversion of A varies with time for feed ratios (CBO/ CAO) ranging between 1 and 3, where is necessary use initial parameters and conditions from the table below

(D) What is the maximum conversion of A, that can be obtain for an equimolar feed of A and B ( CBo / CA0 = 0 ) ? Explain

Run 1 2 3
Temperature ( 0C ) 25 25 35
rA0 (mol/ dm3min) -7.25*10-2 -0.258 -1.37
CB0 (mol/dm3) 3 4 6
time (min) CA0 (mol/dm3)
0 1 2 2
1 0.88 1.78 1.20
2 0.78 1.62 0.89
3 0.65 1.50 0.70
4 0.60 1.40 0.57
