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
