The details of a micromixing experiment and its use in an introductory chemical reaction engineering course are analyzed. The experiment provides a qualitative and quantitative demonstration of the significance of the mixing effect and the limitations of the idealized reactor models with minimal time investment. A Chi-square analysis of the differences between the three classes is presented. Analysis shows that an introduction to micromixing achieved the goals of improving retention and illustrating the limitations of the idealized reactor models.
