Additional Exercises

1:Find the transfer function relationships shown in Equation (M11.5).
2:Find the transfer function relationships shown in Equation (M11.9).
3:Pfaudler is a major manufacturer of reaction vessels. Search the Pfaudler web page to find 100-gallon and 1500-gallon reactors. Do the heat transfer areas vary with volume in the way that you would expect?
4:All of the examples in this module have included a heat generation term, for simplicity. This resulted in simple, low-order models. Develop a more comprehensive model of a semi-batch reactor (flow in, but not out), with a simple first-order irreversible reaction (A → B). Develop the modeling equations, including the following states: V (liquid volume), NA (total amount of component ...
