The exothermic reaction A--->B + C was carried out adiabatically and the following data recorded: The entering molar flow rate of A was 300 mol/min. (a) What are the PFR and CSTR volumes necessary to achieve 40 % conversion? (b) Over what range of conversions would the CSTR and PFR reactor volumes be identical? (c) What is the maximum conversion that can be achieved in a 105 dm 3 CSTR? (d) What conversion can be achieved if a 72 dm 3 PFR is followed in series by a 24 dm 3 CSTR? (e) What conversion can be achieved if a 24 dm 3 CSTR is followed in a series by a 72 dm 3 PFR? (f) Plot the conversion and rate of reaction as a function of PFR reactor volume up to a volume of 100 dm 3. Q UESTIONS X r A (mol/dm 3. min
