Other significance of doing this experiment is to determine rate constant from data and also to study the temperature effects for reaction. The real objective of conducting the experiment is to study the reaction process of saponification reaction between sodium hydroxide and ethyl acetate in CSTR. The first things before all the apparatus is set-up, the conductivity calibration curve is prepared using different molar concentration of sodium hydroxide and sodium acetate. This calibration curve can be used to determine the reaction kinetics and the rate law of the process. Then, both sodium hydroxide and ethyl acetate is prepared according to the given volume and molar concentration before it is transferred into the tank. When the process started, the conductivity and temperature of the reaction is recorded for every two minutes for over 30 minutes. The space time as well as the conductivity and the temperature of the reaction medium are recorded when the liquid level in the CSTR reach two litres. After flow the reaction into the buffer tank, the readings are recorded for another ten minutes. The process are repeated for different amount of feed flow rates. Based on methodology section in the report, it tells about the steps involved while conducting the experiment while the results section shows the recorded value of conductivity and medium reaction temperature. In addition, it also shows the calculated concentrations of the input and output chemicals, rate of reaction and theoretical space time of the CSTR. Instead of that, the discussion section shows the graph plotted using the result obtained and discussed it more detail based on chemical reaction engineering theory. The error and recommendation to avoid mistakes while doing the experiment is also shared in the discussion. The conclusion section concludes all the objectives and calculations of this experiment. EXPERIMENT: 1| (SECTION 02) 3 2.0 INTRODUCTION A common type of reactor used in industrial processing is the continuous-stirred tank reactor (CSTR) which is used primarily for liquid phase reaction. It is normally operated at steady state and assumed to be perfectly mixed. Usually there is no time dependence or position dependence of the temperature, the concentration or the reaction rate inside the tank. This means that every variable is the same inside the reactor. Because the compositions of mixtures leaving a CSTR are those within the reactor, the reaction driving forces, usually the reactant concentrations, are necessarily low. Therefore, except for reaction orders zero- and negative, a CSTR requires the largest volume of the reactor types to obtain desired conversions. However, the low driving force makes possible better control of rapid exothermic and endothermic reactions. When high conversions of reactants are needed, several CSTRs in series
