Question
Chapter 2, Problem 2.36P
Interpretation Introduction

## (a)Interpretation:The general form of an expression for CD as a function of CC is to be determined.Concept introduction:For a reaction of the formA+B→CThe general equation for its rate in terms of concentration of C and nth order reaction will be:dCCdt=k(CA)r(CB)s ......... (1)Here, CA is the concentration of reactant A with order r and CB is the concentration of reactant B with order s. The overall order of the reaction is:n=r+s

Interpretation Introduction

### (b)Interpretation:The expression for CD as a function of CC is to be derived.Concept introduction:For a reaction of the formA+B→CThe general equation for its rate in terms of concentration of C and nth order reaction will be:dCCdt=k(CA)r(CB)sHere, CA is the concentration of reactant A with order r and CB is the concentration of reactant B with order s. The overall order of the reaction is:n=r+sFor the equation of type y=axb and given points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), slope b is calculated as:b=logy2−logy1logx2−logx1 ......... (4)And intercept a is calculated using the slope and one of the given points.

Interpretation Introduction

### (c)Interpretation:The concentration of C when the reactor is stopped is to be calculated.Concept introduction:For a reaction of the form,A+B→CThe general equation for its rate in terms of concentration of C and nth order reaction will be:dCCdt=k(CA)r(CB)sHere, CA is the concentration of reactant A with order r and CB is the concentration of reactant B with order s. The overall order of the reaction is:n=r+s

Interpretation Introduction

### (d)Interpretation:The major argument to support and to also to reject the proposal for not stopping the reaction until CD=13 mol/L.
