11.5.1 Equilibrium Conversion

Exothermic Reactions

Figure 11-3(a) shows the variation of the concentration equilibrium constant as a function of temperature for an exothermic reaction (see Appendix C), and Figure 11-3(b) shows the corresponding equilibrium conversion Xe as a function of temperature. In Example 11-3, we saw that for a first-order reaction the equilibrium conversion could be calculated using Equation (E11-3.13)

E11-3.12
