FB = FA0(B-X)

CB = CA0(B-X)

FC = FA0X

CC = CA0X

## CA0 is given as 2 kmol/m3. Since dilution occurred,

the initial concentration of A that fed to the reactor
will dilute and become to 1 kmol/m3.

Calculation

## Based on the graph plotted, proved that the

reaction of ethylene oxide is first order reaction
since ln(CA0/CA) increased linearly with respect to
time. The reaction for excess water is zero order
since the condition is in dilute as stated by T.
