This notebook illustrates the solution of four simultaneous ordinary differential equations with three constant initial boundary conditions and one algebraic final boundary condition. Forward shooting was used to solve the linear system. The example provided illustrates the temperature profile of an infinitely long cylindrical reactor where the internal reaction is temperature dependent.
