Question

The process shown in Figure P3.91 is the dehydrogenation of propane (C,H,) topropylene (C,H) according to the reaction \mathrm{C}_{3} \mathrm{H}_{8} \rightarrow \mathrm{C}_{3} \mathrm{H}_{6}+\mathrm{H}_{2} The conversion of propane to propylene based on the total propane feed into thereactor at F, is 40%. The product flow rate F, is 50 kg. mol/hr. ) Calculate all the six flow rates F, to F, in kg mol/hr. (b) What is the percent conversion of propane in the reactor based on the fresh-propane fed to the process (F).
