Determine the conversion of eo for a cstr, Chemistry

Close to 12.2 billion metric tons of ethylene glycol (EG) were produced in 2000, which ranked it the twenty-sixth most produced chemical in the nation that year on a total mass basis.  About one-half of the ethylene glycol is used for antifreeze, while the other half is used in the manufacture of polyesters.

a. Determine the conversion of EO for a CSTR.

b. Determine the conversion of EO in a 150m3 batch reactor after 15 minutes and compare your answer to part a and b. 

c. Non-dimensionalize the balance equation for the CSTR to show that the important dimensionless number (named the Damkohler number) is kV/ν0 for a first order irreversible reaction with no volume change.  What is the Damkohler number for an nth order irreversible reaction with no volume change where r=kCAn?
