Question: methane and ethane react in the presence of a catalyst...

Question details

Methane and ethane react in the presence of a catalyst to form formaldehyde. In a parallel reaction, the methane is oxidized to for carbon dioxide and water. CH4 + 202 CO2 + 2 H2O The feed to a reactor contains equimolar amounts of methane and oxygen. If the fractional conversion of methane is 0.90 and the fractional yield of formaldehyde is 0.855, calculate the molar composition of the reactor output stream
