Reaction manager

I'm B.E. chemical engineering student and my BE project is based on Manufacturing of ethylbenzene by improved monsanto process.

There are four reactions ;

ethylene + benzene => ethyl benzene

ethylbenzene + ethylene => di ethylbenzene

diethylbenzene + benzene => 2ethylbenzene

toluene + 2ethlyene => ethylbenzene + propylene

Question : for heterogenous catalytic reaction, what would be the reaction rate? what would come in place of numerator and denominator?

If you want to know how to add the Heterogeneous catalytic reaction then Rn= reactant concentration in your reaction equation DWSIM and Pn=product concentration in your reaction equation in DWSIM (n = number or compound left to right)

now consider the following reaction, i try to give a demonstration of this reaction rate in other image

i just rearrange above equation so numerator and denominator will clear for this reaction

rdehy = kdehy*(P2MeOH*Kdehy - PDME*PH2O)/(PMeOH*Kdehy)

here R1 = CH3OH, P1=CH3OCH3,P2=HOH
