n-Butane is converted to isobutane in a continuous isomerization reactor that operates isothermally at 149C. The feed to the reactor contains 93 mole% n-butane, 5% isobutane, and 2% HCI at 149C, and a 40% conversion of n-butane is achieved. (a) Taking a basis of 1 mol of feed gas, calculate the moles of each component of the feed and product mixtures and the extent of reaction, ~(mol). (b) Calculate the standard heat of the isomerization reaction (kllmol). Then, taking the feed and product species at 25C as references, prepare an inlet-outlet enthalpy table and calculate and fill in the component amounts (mol) and specific enthalpies (kllmol). (See Example 9.5-1.) (c) Calculate the required rate of heat transfer (kl) to or from the reactor (state which it is). Then determine the required heat transfer rate (kW) for a reactor feed of 325 moUh. (d) Use your calculated results to determine the heat of the isomerization reaction at 149C, IlHr(149C)(kllmol).
Chemistry Chapter 1 What is Chemistry Chemistry the overall study of matter and the transformations in can undergo. Matter anything that has mass and takes up space. o Sound, Light, and Heat take up 0 space and have no mass therefore deeming them to have NO MATTER. Research Basic Research research used to further knowledge about how the natural world operates. Applied Research the use of prior information gained in basic research and develops application for this new knowledge. Scientific Method Basic research starts with the Scientific Method; although the old process that’s been taught throughout grade school is the simplest, there is a more advanced Method to use.
