Homework Assignment 2, Due February 1. Determine the activation energy and frequency factor from the following data k (min -1 ) 0.001 0.050 T (°C) 0.00 100 Do this using k(T) = Aexp(- E/RT) and k(T) = A’T n exp(- E’/RT) with n = 1. What is the percentage difference between the two activation energies? Calculate k at 1000°C using both forms of the Arrhenius equation and find the percentage difference between these. Plot k as a function of T over the range 100 to 400°C (try this with both linear graph axes and with semilog).

2. Taking H 2 as the basis of calculation, construct a complete stoichiometric table for the reaction 1/2N 2 + 3/2H 2 NH 3 For an isothermal, isobaric flow system with equimolar feeds of N 2 and H 2 . If the entering total pressure is 16.4 atm and the entering temperature is 1727°C, calculate the concentrations of NH 3 and H 2 when the conversion of H 2 is 60%. If you took N 2 as the basis of the calculations, could 60% conversion of N 2 be achieved (prove your answer).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
