How to find reaction conversions and selectivities?

Homework Statement


My design assignment gives the information of reaction kinetics and the reaction chain but not selectivities and conversions. I was told to find those information from scientific articles. I've found some but not really sure how to use them.

The Attempt at a Solution


I've found some articles but not sure how to apply and interpret them properly to design the reactor and calculate mass and energy balances. Not sure if any chemical engineer is a member here but I wanted to find some help on this helpful forum. Thanks in advance.

What kind of reactor is it? What are the inlet flows. What are the inlet temperatures?

Thanks for your interest professor we think of a fluidized bed reactor but assignment doesn't give us the info about conversions and selectivities if I use other articles and published researches they will have other kinetics and such. What am I supposed to do? Thanks a lot...

I will calculate inlet flow later on becuase we need to know the conversions and selectivities to calculate that first.

This is way too big a problem to give you advice within the framework of Physics Forums. Have you drawn a preliminary flow sheet yet? Do have any ideas on how to design the reactor?
