To skip the problem set up and see how to use Excel variables jump to 5:15. To jump to the use of solver for two equations, jump to 7:15. Comprehension Questions: 1. CH3OH is fed to a reactor at 200ºC and 3 bar with a catalyst that produces CO, H2, dimethyl ether, and H2O. Calculate the equilibrium extents of reaction and compositions of all species. 2. Diisopropylbenzene (DIPB) is a possible byproduct of the reaction of benzene with propylene to make cumene. If the reaction is conducted at 300C and 11 bars with a stoichiometric feed relative to the cumene reaction, calculate the equilibrium extents of reaction and compositions of all species.
