Question: q3 aqueous feed containing reactant a ca02 molliter enters a...

Question details

Q#3: Aqueous feed containing reactant A (CA0-2 mol/liter) enters a plug flow reactor (10 liter) which has a provision for recycling a portion of the flowing stream. The reaction kinetics and stoichiometry are: TA-ICACR mo/L.min We wish to get 96% conversion. Should we use the recycle stream? If so, at what value should we set the recycle flow rate so as to obtain the highest production rate, and what volumetric feed rate can we process to this conversion in the reactor?
