Hence, this variable contribution to the inlet stream of all reactors, except the first, is accounted for by −1 along the diagonal below the main diagonal in A described above. As a preliminary to the solution of (2-37) it is instructive to solve a similar inhomogeneous ODE for x(ω) without matrices: dx + ax = xinlet dω x(ω = 0) = xinitial (2-39) (2-40) 43 ANALYSIS OF A TRAIN OF FIVE CSTRs where xinlet and xinitial are constants. The homogeneous solution is obtained by ignoring xinlet and solving dx + ax = 0 dω (2-41) which has the following solution via separation of variables: dx = −a d ω x x(ω)homogeneous = (constant) exp(−aω) (2-42) (2-43) Since xinlet is constant, the particular solution is obtained by choosing a constant for xparticular .

By definition, each extent of reaction is zero at the inlet to the reactor, where V = 0. The similarities between the two approaches return when one relates molar densities, partial pressures, and mole fractions as Ci = yi p RT (1-5) and the mole fraction of component i is yi = Fi j Fj 1 ≤ j ≤ total number of components (1-18) The final task, before solving the coupled ODEs for the extents of reaction ξ1 , ξ2 , and ξ3 is to express component molar flow rates in terms of the extents of reaction.

The numerical solution of these five coupled ODEs is illustrated in Figure 2-3. Solution (b) Steady-State Solution. The steady-state response for each CSTR is obtained by neglecting the accumulation term in the generic mass balance from part (a): d CAk = CA,k−1 − (1 + β)CAk = 0 d (t/τk ) (2-21) Hence, the steady-state recurrence formula is CAk = CA,k−1 1+β (2-22) which suggests that CAk should be of the following form: CAk = σ = k = 1 1+β σ k−1 1+β (2-23) (2-24) ANALYSIS OF A TRAIN OF FIVE CSTRs 41 The constant σ is determined from the molar density of reactant A in the feed stream to the first reactor: CA0 = σ ◦ =σ (2-25) CA0 (1 + β)k (2-26) The steady-state solution is (CAk )steady state = Laplace Transform Analysis.
