We do not have an analytical expression for the effectiveness factor for a sphere with a reaction obeying
Monod kinetics. However, Eq.(10.44) may be solved numerically, using a suitable numerical method.
With a centered finite difference method, using 200 grid points, the concentration profile given in Fig. 10.11
