Transient Material Balances

A draining tank with a continuous feed is simulated; a chemical reaction takes place in the tank. To observe how concentration in the tank changes without a reaction, set the rate constant slider to zero. Adjust the inlet flow rate and concentration using sliders, then press “Start simulation”. The volume, concentration of A in the tank, or outlet flow rate can be plotted, depending on which is selected from the Plot drop-down menu.
