###### Question details

Three CSTR reactors, each with a volume, V, of 0.5
dm^{3} are arranged in **series.** A
volumetric flow rate of 10 cm^{3}/s is fed into the system
and remains constant throughout the three reactors. A liquid phase
first-order reaction, A -> B +C, is taking place in
the system_{.} What is the rate constant, k (in units of
s^{-1}), if the overall conversion resulting from the three
reactors in series is 85%?
