Question

1. The elementary liquid phase reaction 2A → B, with ka = 0.23 L/mol·h at the operating temperature, is to be carried out in a 500-L constant volume batch reactor that is initially charged with 5 mol/L species A. a. Determine the time it will take (in hours) to achieve 95% conversion. b. What will be the conversion after 3 h? c. Plot conversion (y-axis) over time (x-axis) up to a conversion of 95%.
