Plug Flor Reactor PFR

step input: when t < t _{R}, C = 0when t >= t _{R}, C = C_{0}pulse input: when t = t _{R}, C = C_{0}when t < t _{R}, C = 0when t > t _{R}, C = 0 |

Where

t_{R} | = | theoretical mean residence time |

V | = | reactor volume |

Q | = | reactor flow rate |

C | = | concentration at time |

C_{0} | = | initial concentration |

C_{n} | = | concentration at tank n |

t | = | time |

n | = | number of tanks |
