Batch Reactor with Multiple Reactions

Three irreversible, liquid-phase reactions are carried out in an isothermal batch reactor,
This Demonstration shows plots of the concentrations of the five species as a function of time and how these concentrations change as the rate constants are varied.

Three liquid-phase reactions take place in an isothermal batch reactor:
where and are initially fed into the reactor.
= concentration of
= concentration of
= concentration of
= rate of first reaction
= rate of second reaction
= rate of third reaction
= rate constant for first reaction
= rate constant for second reaction
= rate constant for third reaction
