6.2.2 Gas Phase

The mole balances for gas-phase reactions are given in Table 6-2 in terms of the number of moles (batch) or molar flow rates for the generic rate law for the generic reaction, Equation (2-1). The molar flow rates for each species Fj are obtained from a mole balance on each species, as given in Table 6-2. For example, for a plug-flow reactor
