Question: derive a design equation for a plug flow reactor effluent...

Question details

Derive a design equation for a plug flow reactor (effluent concentration, Ce, as a function of known parameters) with first order kinetics (r = -kC) using a mass balance on a differential control volume. Assume the following parameters are given: total volume (V), reactor length (L), cross sectional area (A), flow rate (Q), influent concentration (C0), rate constant (k).
