 Notes used during the class
 The spreadsheet with the Ergun equation example. Use it to try
 different lengths of reactor
 different catalyst particle sizes
 different pipe diameters
 gas properties (e.g. density)
 to see the effect on pressure drop in the packed bed.

The example covered in class is based on example 48 in F2006 and example 62 in F2011. <rst> The 3 ODE's are:
.. math::
\dfrac{dF_A}{dV} &= r_A\\ \dfrac{dF_B}{dV} &= r_B  R_B \\ \dfrac{dF_C}{dV} &= r_C
where :math:`r_A = r_B = r_C` and :math:`r_A = k\left(C_A  \dfrac{C_B C_C}{K_C} \right)`, and :math:`R_B = k_\text{diff}C_B`.
 :math:`k = 0.01\,\text{s}^{1}`
 :math:`k_\text{diff} = 0.005\,\text{s}^{1}`
 :math:`K_C = 50\,\text{mol.m}^{3}`
We derived earlier in the course that
.. math:: C_A = C_\text{TO}\left(\dfrac{F_A}{F_T}\right)\left(\dfrac{P}{P_0}\right)\left(\dfrac{T_0}{T}\right)
Assuming isothermal and isobaric conditions in the membrane:
.. math:: C_A = C_\text{T0}\left(\dfrac{F_A}{F_T}\right)
where :math:`F_T = F_A + F_B + F_C` and :math:`C_\text{T0} = \dfrac{P_0}{RT_0}`
Using all of the above derivations, we can set up our numerical integration. </rst>
