Question

# You are interested in running the following elementary reactions, which are in the gas phase: ЗА + В €> ЗС + 4D 2A + C → 2E The reactants enter the reactor at 410K with a pressure of the reactor is 18 atm. The initial flow of A is 90.0 mol/sec, which is contained in the gas with stoichiometric amounts with B, running in a reactor that has a volume of 125 dm3. The first reaction has a reaction rate constant of 45.7dm/mol3*sec at 510K and an activation energy of 48.7 kJ/mol. The second reaction has a reaction rate constant of 6.7 dm3/mol*sec at 362K and an activation energy of 39 kJ/mol. The equilibrium constant is 0.35 at 468K and a heat of reaction of 92 kJ/mol. a) What conversion of A do you get? Are these values acceptable, based on what you know thermodynamically? b) What is the yield of C, which is the desired component? c) What is the selectivity of C/E? d) What happens if you increase the temperature to the values of conversion, yield, and selectivity? Decrease the temperature? Are either of these cases thermodynamically possible? What does this tell you about the dominant reaction? You know that with a gas reactor, especially with a change in temperature, that a pressure drop could occur. Based on your calculations, you have determined that an appropriate a value is0.007 What conversion of A do you get? Are these values acceptable, based on what you know thermodynamically? What is the yield of C, which is the desired component? What is the selectivity of C/E? What happens if you increase the temperature to conversion and selectivity? Decrease the temperature? Are either of these cases thermodynamically possible? How do your changes without pressure drop differ from your changes with pressure drop? Make sure to turn in the handwritten work to develop the code, the solver program you used (blue code typed into PolyMath, not the code that comes after running),along with your answers.
