5.16 An extension of Textbook Example 5.5 
Structures of simple systems 
Consider the case where the reaction is changed from exothermic to endothermic. The reactor gain would be less than 1.0; a typical result is given in the following equation.  

Compare the dynamic response of the modified reaction with that of the original system.
