Question

A 1000lb-mol/hr stream of gaseous sulfur dioxide is combined with a stoichiometric amount of oxygen at 1000 K and 1 bar.

a) How much heat (in BTU/hr) must be added or removed to keep the mixture isothermal if 40% of the sulfur dioxide reacts to form sulfur trioxide.

b) calculate the final temperature if the reaction is done in an adiabatic reactor and only 10% of the sulfur dioxide reacts.

Answer #1

Note (Assumption): 1) Heat of Formation at 298K for
SO_{2} and SO_{3} are not given in this question
... it is assumed for calculation purpose and 2) C_{p} as
function of Temperature (T) for SO_{2} , O_{2} and
SO_{3} are not given in this question ... it is assumed for
calculation purpose.

Working methodology remains same ............

After substituting above values, a cubic equaiton will be obtained ....then you have to solve the cubic equation to get the roots (three roots). The one which is positive and real root is the final temperature.

Gaseous methanol at 675 ºC and 1.01325 bar is fed at a rate of
100 mol/hr to an adiabatic reactor where 25% of it is
dehydrogenated to formaldehyde according to the reaction:
CH3OH(g) —>
HCHO(g) + H2(g)
The constant average heat capacity for methanol, formaldehyde,
and hydrogen are 17, 12, and 7 cal/mol∙ºC, respectively, and are
valid over the entire temperature range of your problem
analysis.

The system consists of reactants (10.5 g of butane gas and the
stoichiometric amount of oxygen gas) placed in a diathermic
cylinder sealed from the surroundings by a diathermic, freely
moving, massless piston. The cylinder is placed in a huge water
tank at 300.K. In the initial state, the system is in equilibrium
with the surroundings at 300.K and 1.0 atm. As a result of the
combustion between the reactants, the system reaches a final state
that contains only carbon...
