Problems, or parts of problems, that are openended.
The following gas phase reaction takes place in an industrial PFR:
C is the desired product. D is formed in an undesirable side reaction.
Given:
F_{Ao }= 50 mol/min F_{Bo }= 25 mol/min 
V = 2 m^{3} T = ? and P = ? 
F_{A} = ? F_{B} = ? F_{C} = 81,000 mol/hr 
Additional Information: k_{1}(300 K) = 0.075/sec E_{1}=15000 cal/mol k_{2}(300 K) = 0.0015/sec E_{2}=17500 cal/mol 
Rate Laws: 
Find the operating temperature (T) and pressure (P) for the PFR that will generate our desired production of C. What are the factors that affect your decision?
