The results of the simulation of a reversible batch reactor using Ordinary Differential Equation Solver (ODE45) is presented. It employs the Clasical Runge – Kutta (4.4) method to integrate the equations. Hypothetical values of the rate constants K1, K2, K3 and K4 were employed in the analysis. K1 value was unaltered at 1s – 1, while K2 varied from 0.5, 0.75, 1.0s– 1, K3 and K4 values were fixed at 0.2, 0.5, 0.75s-1. Results of the concentration profile shows that component A falls from 1.0 mol/dm-3 to 0.04mol/dm-3, component B from 0 to 0.53mol/dm-3 then drops, to 0.18mol/dm-3, and component C rises from 0.0 to a maximum value of 0.70mol/dm-3.
