Reaction Equilibrium - Gas Phase Conversion of Ethylene to Ethanol

Application ID: 62441

This app demonstrates the following:

  • How an app can be used as a teaching tool
  • An 8 question multiple choice quiz where the answers can be sent to the grader by email

This app calculates the equilibrium compositions in gas phase conversion of ethylene to ethanol. It allows you to study how the initial conditions and the operating conditions affect the ethanol production.

The app is designed to teach you how to compute quantitative results for the equilibrium composition and provide an understanding for the dynamics of a chemical equilibrium.

This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
