    Problem:
    The following conversion data were obtained in a tubular flow reactor for the gas-phase pyrolysis of acetone at 520 oC and 1 atm.
    CH3COCH3 ---> CH2=C=O + CH4
    Flow rate, g/hr 130 50 21 10.8
    Conversion of acetone 0.05 0.13 0.24 0.35
    The reactor was 80 cm long with 3.3 cm inner diameter. What rate equation is suggested?
