After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Apply the conservation law to a larger control volume (macro-models).
Interpret the resulting mathematical formulation of the conservation law as average values of local properties.
Identify additional closures or assumptions needed to complete the model.
Simulate batch reactors and batch reactors with simultaneous product removal using MATLAB tools.
Understand what is meant by a backmixed system and how it is used to model continuous flow-stirred tank reactors.
Model some transport problems in which the transport coefficient concept is used to close the conservation laws.
Apply the macroscopic model to a simple separation process ...
