ASSIGNMENTS:
 1. For an elementary reaction A+B>products , the reaction rate at 400 K is ten times that at 300 K. Calculate the activation energy for this reaction.
 2. The elementary liquid phase reaction A+B> Products With rate equation r_{A}=k=k_{0}e ^{E/RT} isto take place in a 2 m^{3}steadystate stirred tank reactor. Two feed stream, one containing 1 kmol A/m^{3} and the other containing 1.6 kmol B/m^{3}, are to be introduced at equal volumetric flow rates into the reactor, and 75% conversion of limiting component is desired. If the activation energy of the reaction is given as 83.1 kj/mol, find the flow rate of each stream. Assume a constant density throughout.
 3. A liquid phase first order reversible reaction is carried out in a continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR). Molar densities of A and B are same. Other things (such as space time, flow rate, temperature) remaining the same, a fed of a pure A to the reactor results in 40% conversion of A, while a feed of pure B results in 50% conversion of B. Estimate the reaction equilibrium constant. Assume steady state operation in both the cases.
 4. A 10 m^{3} CSTR is used to decompose a dilute solution of A. The decomposition is irreversible with a first order rate constant of 3.45 hr^{ 1}. 95% decomposition of A is desired. What is the required feed rate?
 5. Consider a nonisothermal continuous stirred tank reactor, in which a first order irreversible, exothermic chemical reaction A>B is taking place. Feed material containing C_{A0} mol/volume of A enters the reactor at temperature T_{0}, and constant volumetric flow rate F. Product is withdrawn from the reactor at the same volumetric flow rate F having composition C_{A} and temperature T. The rate of heat transfer to the cooling coil is Qc (energy /time) and the reactor volume V. You may assume constant density and heat capacity of the reactor liquid. Develop the mathematical model consisting of mass and energy balance equations.
