Problems that are under-specified and require the student to consult other information sources.

The following reaction takes place in a membrane reactor:



k = 1/min V=0.5 m3

Diameter (DT) = 0.1m





FAo=10 mol/min

At T = 298 K

At P = 15 psia


DBM=5*10-5 m2/sec



A pure feed of formaldehyde (A) enters the reactor. The membrane only allows the hydrogen to pass through it.

Rate Law:

Using Polymath, what is the conversion of this system? Also plot the flow rates versus the volume of the membrane reactor.
