± ± Homework 9 November 13, 2006 Problem1 1. Let us first derive an analytical espression for S model ( λ, t, θ )us ing both the models mentioned in the problem statement. Mode l1 : Sequen t ia lReac t ionMode l According this model C is formed from B through an intermediate species X, we can write the rate of formation of B, X and C as shown in Equation(1). In writing the rate rules in Equation(1) we have made use of the fact that the volume is constant. d [ B ] = k 1 [ B ] dt d [ X ] = k 1 [ B ] k 2 [ X ] dt d [ C ] = k 2 [ X ] ( 1 ) dt We can solve the equations simultaneously to get the expressions for the concentrations of [ B ], [ X ]and [ C ] shown in Equation(2).
