Unformatted text preview: The data was recorded until only C remained and the experimental reaction rates were found. Results The modeling resulted in a graph for each experiment that only matched the fitted lines if the reaction rates were manipulated quite drastically, as seen by Figures 1 and 2. Figure 1. Results from Experiment 1; using k 1 =0.02 and k 2 =0.2. Figure 2. Results from Experiment 2; using k 1 =0.2 and k 2 =0.015. Conclusions Although the fitted lines closely resemble the experimental data, this is only accomplished through drastic changes in the reaction rate, and inconsistent reaction rate probabilities. However, Experiment 1 does demonstrate steady state approximation, seeing as the concentration of the intermediate (B) was more or less steady with time. Some sources of error could include non-random rolling or choosing of papers and incorrect data recording....
