Resumo: The possibility of solving the mass balances to a multiplicity of substrates within a CSTR in the presence of a chemical reaction following Michaelis-Menten kinetics using the assumption that the discrete distribution of said substrates is well approximated by an equivalent continuous distribution on the molecular weight is explored. The applicability of such reasoning is tested with a convenient numerical example. In addition to providing the limiting behavior of the discrete formulation as the number of homologous substrates increases, the continuous formulation yields in general simpler functional forms for the final distribution of substrates than the discrete counterpart due to the recursive nature of the solution in the latter case.
