5. Analysis:

From the data generated from Vensim, it can be deduced that increasing the initial number of moles of
substance B increases the overall yield and the selectivity. It is supported by the equation:

π‘Ÿ1𝐴 βˆ’π‘˜1 𝐢𝐴 𝐢𝐡2 π‘˜1 𝐢𝐡
π‘†π·β„π‘ˆ = = 2 =
π‘Ÿ2𝐴 βˆ’π‘˜2 𝐢𝐴 𝐢𝑏 π‘˜2 𝐢𝐴

Thus, in order to increase the selectivity, the concentration of B must be kept high while the concentration of A
must be kept low.

For the first condition, the SD/U and YD are constant since the number of moles of A and B are equal.
For the second condition, increasing the number of moles of A results a very low selectivity. Also, as time
increases, the conversion becomes constant. For the last condition, it is the ideal condition to achieve high
selectivity and yield. Also from the data, the last condition had the shortest time to achieve the target
conversion of 0 – 0.8.

In conclusion, increasing the number of moles of B while keeping A low achieves a more efficient
reaction that will yield more of the desired product rather than the undesired. It will also make the conversion
fast, thus it will be economically efficient too.


1. Purpose:

The purpose of the exercise is to use Vensim in the calculations of the volume of the reactor,
instantaneous selectivity and overall yield at a target conversion of 0 to 0.8. Additionally, try other initial
compositions of substance A and B in the reactor.


2. Model Description:

The exercise was carried out under various assumptions and given data. One of these are the reaction

A + B οƒ  D, r1A = -k1CACB

A + B οƒ  U, r2 = -k2CA2CB

Additionally, the reaction was carried in a semibatch reactor where the volume and the initial number of
moles were constant and the following data were also given:
