Unformatted text preview: 7.1. ISOTHERMAL, ISOCHORIC KINETICS 251 Let us perform a series of row operations to find all of the linear dependencies. Our aim is to convert the matrix into an upper triangular form. The lower left corner of already has a zero, so there is no need to worry about it. Let us add the first and fourth equations to eliminate the 1 in the 4 , 1 slot. This gives d dt NO N N 2 NO + O O 2 = 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 parenleftbigg r 1 r 2 parenrightbigg . (7.158) Next, add the first and third equations to get d dt NO N NO + N 2 NO + O O 2 = 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 parenleftbigg r 1 r 2 parenrightbigg . (7.159) Now multiply the first equation by 1 and add it to the second to get d dt NO NO + N NO + N 2...
