The irreversible elementary reaction 2A ---+ B takes place in the gas
phase in an isothermal tubular (plug-Jlow) reactor. Reactant A and a diluent
C are fed in equimolar ratio, and conversion of A is 80%. If the molar feed
rate of A is cut in half, what is the conversion of A assuming that the feed rate
of C is left unchanged? Assume ideal behavior and that the reactor tempera-
ture remains unchanged. What was the point of this problem?
