Determine if pore diffusion mass transport may be limiting, Science

Consider the following data for ethylene hydrogenation to ethane in a batch reactor:                

 C2H4 + H2 → C2H6

The reaction may be considered to be first-order and irreversible:

Data

T = 100 °C

Initial PC2H4 = 350 torr

Initial PH2 = 612 torr

Mass of catalyst = 0.43 g

Volume of catalyst = 0.21 cm3

Catalyst: 0.3 x 0.3 cm cylinders

Pore radius = 100 Å  

Assuming that only Knudsen diffusion is present, evaluate these data to determine if pore diffusion mass transport may be limiting.
