Model the concentrations of A, B, and C in a series reaction using MathCad: rxn 1 rxn 2 A -> B -> C Provide a numerical plot of the concentrations of A, B, and C vs. time. Initial conditions: At t = 0 [A] = 37.6 mmol [B] = [C] = 0 use a step size of 1 sec for 1 minute Part A. Assume each reaction is 1 st order, i.e. r A = d[A]/dt = -k

Unformatted text preview: 1 [A] k 1 = 0.025 sec-1 k 2 = 0.010 sec-1 Part B. Assume the first reaction is first order, but the 2 nd reaction is an enzymatic reaction, i.e. r c = Vm*[B]/(Km + [B]) k 1 = 0.25 sec-1 Vm = 0.37 mmol/sec Km = 0.015 mmol You may wish to compare your solution to a simple Euler method to verify behavior....
