Question: the reaction a b r is carried out in...

Question details

The reaction A + B→ R is carried out in the liquid-phase reactor. The components are introduced at 10 L/min, with equal concentration CA0 CBO 2 mol / L and they are mixed together at the inlet to the reactor. This mixture goes into the reactor at 27。C. There are two types of reactors to choose from: 1 - A CSTR with 200 L, which can operate at 0 .C. 2 - A PFR with 800 L, which can only operate at 27 C It is known that the reaction is elementary and k-0.07 L/(mol. min) at 27 C and the activation energy is equal to 20 kcal/mol. What reactor would you recommend and under what conditions? Justify. Q31 (30 Marks)
