Abstract

In several areas of engineering, it is possible to put real problems in mathematical functions; when we represent a problem with variables in the form of function, we were able to extract various information from it. This paper compared two different mathematical methods, being the finite difference method and the Fourth Order Range-Kutta method, to analyze the concentration and temperature of the water flow inside a tubular reactor. These results were compared with the analytical and experimental results of the problem, demonstrating that the Fourth Order Range-Kutta method was more advantageous than the finite difference method.
