REACTION ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 13.3 : The half-life for first order reaction could be described in the differential equation dC / dt = -kC where k is a constant, C is concentration and t is time. (a) Find the equation of C as a function of t. (b) Find the half life for such reaction or the time required to reduce 50 % of the initial concentration, where k = 0.139 per minute. (c) When the initial concentration Co is 16 mol / cubic metre, how long does the reaction required to achieve the final concentration of 1 mol / cubic metre?

REACTION ENGINEERING - ANSWER 13.3 : (a) dC / dt = -kC, dC / C = -k dt. Integrate both sides gives ln C - ln Co = ln (C / Co) = -kt, C = Co exp (-kt). (b) When C / Co = 0.5, t = [ ln (C / Co) ] / (-k) = [ ln (0.5) ] / (-0.139) = 4.9867 minutes. (c) Step 1 : 16 to 8 mol per cubic metre. Step 2 : 8 to 4. Step 3 : 4 to 2. Step 4 : 2 to 1. Each step takes t minutes. There are 4 steps needed from 16 to 1 mol / cubic metre or 4t = 19.9468 minutes.

ENGINEERING DRAWING - EXAMPLE 18.3 : Autocad computer program is used to draw a pipe that is used to transport natural gases for processing. Actual length of the pipe is 10 metres. The pipe has cross sectional area of circle in shape with measured circumference of s = 3 metres. (a) If 10 units are used to represent the actual length of the pipe in computerised engineering drawing, find the diameter of the pipe, d that will be shown in the engineering drawing. (b) If one unit in the program equals to 1 centimetre, find the scale used in the computer program.

ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY - EXAMPLE 16.1 : According to Shockley equation, the I - V characteristic of a diode is approximated by I = IS [ exp (nVD / VT) - 1 ]. For silicon, let the reverse bias saturation current IS as 0.000000000001. If n is ideality factor with value of 1.5, VT as thermal voltage drop of 0.026 V at room temperature, what is the value of current I that passes through the silicon diode in the heater of evaporator when the forward voltage drop VD = 0.026 V? Please take note that exp is the exponential function with e(1) = 2.718, e(2) = 7.389.
