Solving for Completely Mixed Series Reactor Concentration with Pulse Input

note: maximum value for n is ~170 due to factorial limits

initial concentration (C _{0})= 0 = 0 milligram/liter |

time (t) = 0 = 0 second |

theoretical mean residence time (t _{R})= 0 = 0 second |

number of reactors (n) = 0 = 0 |

concentration at n reactor at time (C _{n})= NOT CALCULATED |

Select to solve for a different unknown

Residence Time

theoretical mean residence time | |

reactor volume | |

reactor flow rate |

Step input for completely mixed or

continuously stirred tank reactor CSTR

concentration | |

initial concentration | |

time | |

theoretical mean detention time |

Pulse Input for completely mixed or

continuously stirred tank reactor CSTR

concentration | |

initial concentration | |

time | |

theoretical mean detention time | |

concentration at n tank in series |

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 |
