Question

Asked Sep 26, 2019

Step 1

Let n_{1} to n_{5} represent the molar flowrate of components in outlet stream.

The reactions taking place inside the reactor are as shown andlet x_{1} and x_{2 }represent the extent of reaction for reaction 1 and 2 respectively.

Step 2

Degree of freedom is given as in equation 1

DOF= (Number of unknowns) - (Total number of independent equations) – Equation 1

In the given problem there are 7 unknowns- , n_{2}, n_{3}, n_{4}, n_{5}, x_{1, }x_{2 }

The number of independent equations is equal to number of species in the system. Since there are 5 species the number of equations possible are 5.

Step 3

Part b

Product stream flow rates in terms of extent of reaction are given from equation 2 ...
