11.4.1 Adiabatic Energy Balance

In the previous section, we derived Equation (11-28), which relates conversion to temperature and the heat added to the reactor, image. Let’s stop a minute and consider a system with the special set of conditions of no work, image, adiabatic operation image, let Ti0 = T0 and then rearrange (11-28) into the form
