Space Velocity using Molar Feed Rate of Reactant Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Space Velocity = Molar Feed Rate of Reactant/(Concentration of Reactant in Feed*Reactor Volume)
s = FAo/(CA0*Vreactor)
This formula uses 4 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.
Molar Feed Rate of Reactant - (Measured in Mole per Second) - The Molar Feed Rate of Reactant gives the number of moles of A being fed to the reactor per unit time.
Concentration of Reactant in Feed - (Measured in Mole per Meter³) - Concentration of Reactant in Feed is the number of moles entering the reactor per volume of feed.
Reactor Volume - (Measured in Cubic Meter) - The Reactor Volume gives us the capacity of the reactor.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Molar Feed Rate of Reactant: 5 Mole per Second --> 5 Mole per Second No Conversion Required
Concentration of Reactant in Feed: 30 Mole per Meter³ --> 30 Mole per Meter³ 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 = FAo/(CA0*Vreactor) --> 5/(30*2.9)
Evaluating ... ...
s = 0.0574712643678161
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.0574712643678161 Hertz -->0.0574712643678161 Cycle per Second (Check conversion here)
FINAL ANSWER
0.0574712643678161 Cycle per Second <-- Space Velocity
(Calculation completed in 00.031 seconds)
