Unformatted text preview: . After a certain critical mass of minor species has accumulated, exothermic recombination of these minor species to form the major product H 2 O induces the temperature to rise, which accelerates further the reaction rates. This is manifested in a thermal explosion . A common de²nition of the end of the induction period is the induction time , t = t ind , the time when dT/dt goes through a maximum. Here one ²nds t ind = 4 . 53 × 10 − 4 s. (6.158) At the end of the induction zone, there is a ²nal relaxation to equilibrium. CC BY-NC-ND. 18 November 2011, J. M. Powers. 224 CHAPTER 6.
