After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Model systems where a gas is absorbed into a reacting liquid based on the film model.
Understand the role of a key dimensionless parameter, the Hatta number, in determining the extent of reaction in the film (fast reactions) relative to that in the bulk liquid (slow reactions).
Distinguish the various regimes of absorption for a fast reaction and examine the effect of operating parameters for these cases.
Extend and study the modeling of more complex systems by taking an example of simultaneous absorption of two gases.
Couple the film model with macro- or meso-models for the reactors in order to set up design equations ...
