Question

Dehydrogenation of Propane \mathrm{C}_{3} \mathrm{H}_{8} \rightarrow \mathrm{C}_{3} \mathrm{H}_{6}+\mathrm{H}_{2} The process is to be designed for a 95% overall conversion of propane.The reaction products are separated into two streams: – the first, which contains H2, C3H6, and 0.555% of the propane that leaves the reactor, is taken off as product; – the second stream, which contains the balance of the unreacted propane and 5% of the propylene in the first stream, is recycled to the reactor. Calculate the composition of the product, the ratio (molesrecycled)/(mole fresh feed), and the single-pass conversion
