Answer to Question #267802 in Chemical Engineering for Yogesh

Question #267802

An irreversible first-order homogeneous reaction A ----> P is carried out in a batch reactor. It is

required to produce 500 tons of product in 5000 hours of operation. The following data is


Kat 1630C = 0.8 h-1 ; E = 28.96 kcal/gmol ; ΔHr = -15 kcal/gmol ; CPA= 150 kcal /gmol K

A=    kg / m3


The times necessary to fill and drain the reactor are 10 & 15 minutes. Negligible reaction occurs

in 10 minutes required to heat reactor to 1630C. XA= 90% . Compare the size requirements for

adiabatic and isothermal operation.
