MSE618 SPRING 2018 Reading assignment (Weeks 11): Houston Chap 5 pages 144 152 Bard & Faulkner Chap 1, pages 1-19 1. Describe cage effect and Langevin equation a. The cage effect describes the behavior of reactants in a solution compared to reactants in the gas phase. In a solution, reactants must diffuse through the solution to find one another, but are better suited to stay together for many collisions once they have come together. The later part of this explanation describes the cage effect. The Langevin equation accounts for the frictional losses in the motion of the solution fluid and states that a particle’s average velocity will decrease to zero, independent o f its starting velocity. 2. Describe diffusion-controlled reactions a. Diffusion-controlled reactions are simply reactions that are dependant on the interaction rate of the reacting species, where product is formed as soon as the proper species come into contact. Therefore the rate at which the species meet one another, the diffusion of them, is the primary control over the overall rate of the reaction.

    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.
