After completing Chapter 14 of the text and associated CD ROM material the reader will be able to:
 Describe the tanksinseries and dispersion one parameter models.
 Describe how to obtain the mean residence time and variance to calculate the number of tanksinseries and the Peclet number.
 Calculate Peclet numbers and dispersion coefficients using literature correlations and experimental RTD data
 Calculate the conversion for a first order reaction taking place in a tubular reactor with dispersion.
 Use COMSOL Multiphysics to solve model equations for axial and radial dispersion
 Describe how to use combinations of ideal rectors to model a real reactor and how to use tracer data to determine the model parameters.
