m3/hr to kmol/hr
« on: July 29, 2013, 04:43:32 PM »
Hi I need to convert m3/hr to kmol/hr for oxygen as a constituent of air entering a reactor.
Oxygen is entering the reactor 1.3608 m3/hr and I converted it to kmol/hr by the following:
kmol/hr = 1.3608/[(1/1.429)x31.998]

1.429 kg/m3 = density of Oxygen @ stp
31.998 = Molecular Weight of Oxygen

All I want to know is if I have the right thinking in what I have done?

question is, if you made some oxygen enter a reactor, would STP apply?


if so, your calculation would be correct..

... BUT : I seldom saw a reactor working at STP

To be honest there are a number of issues I am having with the data I received from a gasification process which took place a number of months ago. While I am trying to get in contact with the research assistants who carried out the original work I am pulling bits of data together and doing it all in Excel. Once I have the correct parameters it will just be a case of throwing them in excel and letting it fix the mess  ;) I am more concerned about having my methods correct!
