1 ME 525 Homework #2 Due Tuesday, February 8, 2011 Prof. Lucht (E-mail address: Lucht@purdue.edu) 1. Turns, Problem 4.10. 2. The decomposition of ozone (O 3 ) can be modeled as the following sequence of elementary reactions:  1 32 1 0 2 2 1 0 3 log 14.63 , 0 , 22.18 log 13.06 , 0 , 4.57 [] A A kcal k OM OO M A b E gmol kcal k A b E gmol Ac m g m o l s   (a) Calculate the rate constants for the two forward reactions as written above at a temperature of 800 K. (b) Write a differential equation for the change in [O] with respect to time and solve the equation for the case of constant ozone and diatomic oxygen concentrations. Neglect reverse reactions. (c) Calculate the steady-state concentration of O atoms in a gas mixture with a temperature of 800 K, a pressure of 2 atm, and mole fractions (initially) of 0.2 for ozone and 0.8 diatomic oxygen. Neglect reverse reactions. (d) Based on your answer to part (c), at what rate in gmol/(cm 3 -sec) does the ozone
