Kinetics and Reactor Design Quiz Screencasts

Each screencast has at least one interactive quiz during the video. The description above each video provides a brief summary.

Description: Describes why batch reactors are used, their scale up capabilities, and presents mole balances for the reactor.

Description: Describes the reasons for using a CSTR, presents the mass balances and discusses the unique aspects of CSTRs.

Description: Derives the mole balance for a plug flow reactor (PFR) and describes how to account for changes in volumetric flow rates with distance down the PFR.

Description: Presents the mass and energy balances for a steady-state CSTR in which a reversible reaction takes place. The equations are plotted (product concentration vs. temperature) with an interactive Mathematica demonstration and the effects of changing feed temperature, heat transfer coefficient, and reverse rate constant are presented.

Description: Explain multiple steady states and how they arise for a CSTR operating at steady state.

Description: Explain multiple steady states and how they arise for a CSTR operating at steady state, part 2.

Description: Analyzes a continuous stirred tank reactor in terms of heat generated and heat removed to predict which solutions to the mass and energy balances are stable.

Description: A brief overview of plug flow reactors, their properties, equations, and uses.

Description: Overview of situations where the semibatch reactor has advantages over other types of reactors. The mole balance for the reactor is briefly presented.
