After completing Chapter 5 of the text and associated DVD material the reader will be able to:
- Describe the CRE algorithm that allows the reader to solve chemical reaction engineering problems through logic rather than memorization.
- Size batch reactors, CSTRs, PFRs, PBRs, and microreactors for isothermal operation given the rate law and feed conditions.
- Discuss solutions to problems taken from the California Professional Engineers Registration Examination in order to work these problems in 30 minutes.
- Account for the effects of pressure drop on conversion in packed bed tubular reactors and in packed bed spherical reactors.
