Q.1 Reactant gas (uo= 0.3 m/s, Vo= 0.3m m3 /s passes upward through a 2-m
diameter fluidized bed (u mf = 0.03 m/s, Emf = 0.5) containing 5 tons of catalyst (W
= 5000 kg, p = 1000 kg/m3). Reaction proceeds as follows: 15
A —►R, -rA = kCA with k= 0.8 m3/m3s.s

Calculate the conversion of reactant. CAO = 100 moUm3, D= 20x10-6 m2/s, a=

0.33. Estimated bubble size in the bed: db = 0.16 m
Q2. The Catalytic reaction (A—+ 4R) is run at 4.2 atm and 120°C in a plug flow
reactor which contains 0.05 kg of catalyst and uses a feed consisting of partially
converted product of 20 litre/h of pure unreacted A. the results are 15

CAin„mol/liter 0.100 0.080 0.060 0.040

CAoutrnowiter 0.084 0.070 0.055 0.038

Find the rate expression.

Q3. How the conversion is determined in Fluid solid reactions if Ash film
resistance control the overall rate of reaction in spherical particles of unchanging

Q4. Define E(t), F(t) in a non ideal plug flow reactor. What is Convulation
integral in a non ideal reactor?

Q5. In a heterogeneous catalytic reactions write down the steps followed for
surface kinetics for a particular reaction.

Q6. Reactant A is diffusing through the pore of a solid catalyst and reacting on the
surface by a 1st order reaction. Derive the expression for concentration and find the
thiele modulus from the equation?

Q7. Benzene and ethanol are reacting on the solid catalyst surface to form ethyle
benzene and water. All the reactants and products were attached to the active sites
of the catalyst find the rate expression for this catalytic reactions. 10

Q8.In a fluid fluid reactions what are the limitations? Develop a rate equation for
straight mass transfer of a component?
