When activation energy is high enough, a nonisothermal CSRT, where a first order reaction is taking place, exhibits multiple steady states. In the notebook, we show how ImplicitPlot can plot these steady states versus the Damk÷hler number. We get the same figure as figure 4.20, page 207, given in the book by Kenneth J. Beers in Numerical Methods for Chemical Engineering, Applications in Matlab, Cambridge University Press, 2007.

The function of Mathematica 6.0, ContourPlot, has new features and has replaced what was performed by the now obsolete function ImplicitPlot.
