Rate Constant for Plug Flow Reactor using Space Time for Negligible Density Changes
Rate Constant for Plug Flow Reactor = (1/Space Time for Plug Flow Reactor )*ln(Initial Reactant Conc./Reactant Concentration)
Space Time for Plug Flow Reactor with Negligible Density Changes
Space Time for Plug Flow Reactor = (1/Rate Constant for Plug Flow Reactor)*ln(Initial Reactant Conc./Reactant Concentration)
Initial Cocentration of Reactant in Plug Flow Reactant with Negligible Density Changes
Initial Reactant Conc. = Reactant Concentration*exp(Space Time for Plug Flow Reactor*Rate Constant for Plug Flow Reactor)
Exit Age Distribution Curve from C Pulse Curve
Exit Age Distribution = C Pulse/(Units of Tracer/Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor)
Exit Age Distribution based on Mean Residence Time
E in Mean Residence Time = (Volume of reactor)/Units of Tracer*C Pulse
Volume of Reactor based on Exit Age Distribution
Volume of reactor = (E in Mean Residence Time*Units of Tracer)/C Pulse
Volumetric Flow Rate based on Mean Pulse Curve
Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor = Volume of reactor/Mean Pulse Curve
Mean of C pulse Curve
Mean Pulse Curve = Volume of reactor/Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor
Area under C-pulse curve
Area under Curve = Units of Tracer/Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor
F Curve
F Curve = C step/Initial Concentration of Reactant
