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?
Rate equation for PFR has been determined from flow rate and conversion data. The solution is detailed and well presented.
