Reactor Space Velocity Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Space Velocity = Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor/Reactor Volume
s = vo/Vreactor
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Space Velocity - (Measured in Hertz) - The Space Velocity of a reactor gives us the number of reactor volumes that can be treated per unit time.
Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor - (Measured in Cubic Meter per Second) - The Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor gives the volume of the reactants stream being fed to the reactor per unit time.
Reactor Volume - (Measured in Cubic Meter) - The Reactor Volume gives us the capacity of the reactor.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor: 60 Cubic Meter per Second --> 60 Cubic Meter per Second No Conversion Required
Reactor Volume: 2.9 Cubic Meter --> 2.9 Cubic Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
s = vo/Vreactor --> 60/2.9
Evaluating ... ...
s = 20.6896551724138
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
20.6896551724138 Hertz -->20.6896551724138 Cycle per Second (Check conversion here)
FINAL ANSWER
20.6896551724138 Cycle per Second <-- Space Velocity
(Calculation completed in 00.014 seconds)

8 Basic Formulas Calculators

Space Velocity using Molar Feed Rate of Reactant
Space Velocity = Molar Feed Rate of Reactant/(Concentration of Reactant in Feed*Reactor Volume) Go
Space Time using Molar Feed Rate of Reactant
Space Time = (Concentration of Reactant in Feed*Reactor Volume)/Molar Feed Rate of Reactant Go
Molar Flow Rate of Unreacted Reactant using Reactant Conversion
Molar Flow Rate of Unreacted Reactant = Molar Feed Rate of Reactant*(1-Reactant Conversion) Go
Molar Feed Rate of Reactant using Reactant Conversion
Molar Feed Rate of Reactant = Molar Flow Rate of Unreacted Reactant/(1-Reactant Conversion) Go
Reactor Space Velocity
Space Velocity = Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor/Reactor Volume Go
Reactor Space Time
Space Time = Reactor Volume/Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor Go
Space Time using Space Velocity
Space Time = 1/Space Velocity Go
Space Velocity using Space Time
Space Velocity = 1/Space Time Go

Reactor Space Velocity Formula

Space Velocity = Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor/Reactor Volume
s = vo/Vreactor

What is the Reactor Space Velocity ?

The Reactor Space Velocity gives us the number of reactor volumes that can be treated per unit time. The Reactor Space Velocity is the inverse of reactor space time. This is the number of volumes of reactor that either completely enters or completely exits the reactor in a unit period of time.

What is Chemical Reaction Engineering?

Chemical reaction engineering is a specialty in chemical engineering or industrial chemistry dealing with chemical reactors. Frequently the term relates specifically to catalytic reaction systems where either a homogeneous or heterogeneous catalyst is present in the reactor. Sometimes a reactor per se is not present by itself, but rather is integrated into a process, for example in reactive separations vessels, retorts, certain fuel cells, and photocatalytic surfaces.

How to Calculate Reactor Space Velocity?

Reactor Space Velocity calculator uses Space Velocity = Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor/Reactor Volume to calculate the Space Velocity, The Reactor Space Velocity gives us the number of reactor volumes that can be treated per unit time. Space Velocity is denoted by s symbol.

How to calculate Reactor Space Velocity using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Reactor Space Velocity, enter Volumetric Flow Rate of Feed to Reactor (vo) & Reactor Volume (Vreactor) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Reactor Space Velocity calculation can be explained with given input values -> 20.68966 = 60/2.9.
