Expert Answer

Step 1

The reaction taking place is,

 

S→P

 

According to the Michaelis-Menten equation, the reaction rate for this reaction is defined as written below.

fullscreen
Step 2

For CSTR, the volume of the reactor is calculated by the formula derived below:

Here,

VCSTR = volume of the reactor

= volumetric flowrate

[S]0 = Initial substrate concentration

Step 3

For PFR, the volume of the reactor is calculated by the formula derived below:

Here,

VPFR = volume of the reactor

V̇...
