    Liquid phase reaction reversible:

    A + B = R + S

    k1 = 7l/mol*min
    k2 = 3l/mol*min

    It occurs in a continuous stirred tank reactor of 120liters. 2 streams, one with 2.8 mol of A/liter and the other 1.6 mol of B/liter, feed the reactor with the same volumetric flow. The goal is to have a 75% conversion of the limitant reactant. Calculate the volumetric flow of each components.
