In this paper, we study second-order differential equations that represent the steady state model in an adiabatic tubular chemical reactor. Theoretical results on existence and range of positive solutions are proved by applying a fixed point theorem. At the mean time, numerical solutions are obtained by computer programming. Results from mathematical analysis are compared with the numerical solutions.
