Question details

Monochloroethane (C2H5Cl) is produced by reacting ethane with chlorine. The side reaction of monochloroethane and chlorine to form dichloroethane (C2H4Cl2) also occurs: C2H6 + Cl2 → C2H5Cl + HCl C2H5Cl + Cl2 → C2H4Cl2 + HCl The reactor is operated such that the feed stream contains 100 mol/s of chlorine (Cl2) and 77% excess ethane (C2H6). All of the chlorine is consumed in the reactor (100% conversion). The yield of C2H5Cl is 86%. Use the Atomic Species Balance method to solve this problem. Calculate the molar flow rate of each component in the product streamMonochloroethane (C2HsCl) is produced by reacting ethane with chlorine. The side reaction of monochloroethane and chlorine to
