Solving For Theoretical Mean Residence Time
Theoretical Mean Residence Time

Inputs:

reactor volume (V)
flow rate (Q)


Conversions:

reactor volume (V)
= 0
= 0
meter^3
flow rate (Q)
= 0
= 0
meter^3/second

Solution:

theoretical mean residence time (tR)
= NOT CALCULATED

pulse input
step input:
when t < tR, C = 0
when t >= tR, C = C0

pulse input:
when t = tR, C = C0
when t < tR, C = 0
when t > tR, C = 0

Where
tR=theoretical mean residence time
V=reactor volume
Q=reactor flow rate
C=concentration at time
C0=initial concentration
Cn=concentration at tank n
t=time
n=number of tanks
