**Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor**

2
Problem statement A chemical reaction takes place in a series of four continuous stirred tank reactors arranged as shown in Fig

3
**100 lit/hr 100 lit/hr 1000 lit/hr CA0=1 mol/lit 1000 lit/hr CA1 CA2**

V1 CA 1 K1 V2 CA 2 K2 V3 CA 3 K3 V4 CA 4 K4 1000 lit/hr CA1 CA2 CA3 CA4

4
**The chemical reaction is a first order irreversible reaction of the type-**

A B The value of the rate constant ki, is different in each reactor. Also, the volume of each reactor Vi is different k

5
**Assumptions: The system is steady state and unsteady state.**

The reactions are in liquid phase. There is no change in volume or density of the liquid. Reactor Vi(L) Ki(h-1) 1 1000 0.3 2 1500 0.4 3 100 0.1 4 500 0.2

**Using MATLAB for steady state results**

function f=fourcstrsteady(x) f=zeros(4,1); %defining constants CA0=1; V1=1000; K1=0.1; %data from table V2=1500; K2=0.2; V3=100; K3=0.4; V4=500; K4=0.3; xa=x(1);xb=x(2);xc=x(3);xd=x(4); %material balance equations: f(1)=(1000*CA0)-(1000*xa)-(V1*K1*xa); f(2)=(1000*xa)+(100*xc)-(1100*xb)-(V2*K2*xb); f(3)=(1100*xb)+(100*xd)-(1200*xc)-(V3*K3*xc); f(4)=(1100*xc)-(1100*xd)-(V4*K4*xd);

**Running the following displays the steady state concentrations in the tanks:**

clc clear all x0=[0,0,0,0]; %initial values x0) %fsolve to solve the steadystate

**MATLAB for unsteady state results**

function f=fourcstr(t,x) f=zeros(4,1); %defining constants CA0=1; V1=1000; K1=0.1;%data from the table given V2=1500; K2=0.2;%data from the table given V3=100; K3=0.4;%data from the table given V4=500; K4=0.3;%data from the table given xa=x(1);xb=x(2);xc=x(3);xd=x(4); %defining the differential equations %material balance equations assuming unsteady state f(1)=(1000*CA0)-(1000*xa)-(V1*K1*xa); f(2)=(1000*xa)+(100*xc)-(1100*xb)-(V2*K2*xb); f(3)=(1100*xb)+(100*xd)-(1200*xc)-(V3*K3*xc); f(4)=(1100*xc)-(1100*xd)-(V4*K4*xd);

11
**Running the following code in MATLAB yields the **

plot depicting the variation of Concentration in each tank: clc clear all x0=[1;0;0;0]; %defining the initial values. [0 0.1], x0); %ode45 to solve the unsteady state figure; plot(t,x); %plot function %labelling x and y axes xlabel('time t(hrs)'); ylabel('concentration c(t)');

12
**Steady state result predicted :**

At steady state, the concentration in tanks 1,2,3 and 4 as predicted by the programme: [CA1 CA2 CA3 CA4]= [ ]

13
**Unsteady state results**

The following variation is predicted with respected to time
