M5.3. Steady-State and Dynamic Behavior (Chapter 3)

At steady state, the component A balance yields a quadratic expression,

where the subscript s is used to indicate the steady state value. Solving this quadratic and using the positive root (clearly, there cannot be negative concentrations), we find

and solving for the steady-state concentration of B,

Using these two expressions, we can find the steady-state input-output curve relating CBs and ...
