The following elementary first-order reactions occur at constant density:

k1 k2
A --> B --> C

k1 = 5 hr-1
k2 = 4 hr-1
CA0 = 1 mol/lit
CB0 = CC0 = 0
v0 = 20 m^2/min

Find the maximum production rate of B in moles per minute and the optimum  for
(a) a plug flow reactor
(b) a mixed flow reactor

Find the production rate of B in moles per minute for
(c) a mixed flow reactor with V = 100 m3
(d) two mixed flow reactors in series, each 50 m3
