A first-order reaction with no change in the volumetric flow rate (υ = υ0) is to be carried out in two CSTRs placed in series (Figure 5-5).
Figure 5-5. Two CSTRs in series.
The effluent concentration of reactant A from the first CSTR can be found using Equation (5-9)
with τ1 = V1/υ0. From a mole balance on reactor 2,
Solving for CA2, the concentration exiting the second reactor, we obtain
If both ...
