The Energy Balance for Chemical Reactors
Copyrightc
2011 by Nob Hill Publishing, LLC
To specify the rates of reactions in a nonisothermal reactor, we require amodel to determine the temperature of the reactor, i.e. for the reaction

The temperature is determined by the energy balance for the reactor.
We derive the energy balance by considering an arbitrary reactor volume ele-ment, shown in Figure 1

The statement of conservation of energy for this system takes the form,
rate of energyaccumulation
=
rate of energyentering systemby inflow
rate of energyleaving systemby outflow

rate of heatadded to system

rate of workdone on system

Work Term
It is convenient to split the work term into three parts:
˙
, the work doneby the flow streams while moving material into and out of the reactor,
˙
s
, theshaft work being done by stirrers, compressors, etc., and
˙
b
, the work donewhen moving the system boundary.
