Red <-> Blue K 1 =K -1 =0.025 2. Blue -> Green K 2 =0.0025 Notice that Red and Blue go down together Change rates to get to Regime C: Steady state 1. Red -> Blue K 1 =0.0025 2. Blue -> Red K -1 = 0.025 2. Blue -> Green K 2 =0.025 Notice fixed and small concentration of intermediate You can log on and try other combinations to test the validity of the assumptions of the two approximations.
