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 form

A+BC

The 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 form

A+BC

The general equation for its rate in terms of concentration of C and nth order reaction will be:

dCCdt=k(CA)r(CB)s

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

For the equation of type y=axb and given points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), slope b is calculated as:

b=logy2logy1logx2logx1 ......... (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+BC

The general equation for its rate in terms of concentration of C and nth order reaction will be:

dCCdt=k(CA)r(CB)s

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

(d)

Interpretation:

The major argument to support and to also to reject the proposal for not stopping the reaction until CD=13 mol/L.
