Trattsfomations nnd ]|eat Trenlmenl l2-2 Determine the constants c and n in Equation l2-2 frrat describe the rate of crystal- lizationofpolypropylene at 140"C. (See Figure 12-30) Solution: f : I - exp(-ctn) T - 140'C : 413 K We can rearrange the equation and eliminate the exponential by taking natu- ral logarithms of both sides of the rearranged equation. We can then note that ln(l - f) versusr is a power equation; if these terms are plotted on a log-log plot, we should obtain a linear relationship, as the graph of the data below indicates. Note that in setting up the equation for plotting, we switch the minus sign from the right hand to the left hand side, since we don't have negative numbers on the log-log paper. I - f : exp(-ctn) ln(l - f): -ctn ln[-ln(l --l)] : ln(ct") ln[ -ln(l - f)] : ln(c) * n ln(t) A log-log plot of "-ln(l - f)" versus "t" is shown. From the graph, we find that the slope n - 2.89 and theconstant c can be found from oneof the points from the curve: iff:0.5, t:S1.Then I - 0.5 : exp[-c(55)1\$1 c:6.47 X 10-6 f r(min) -ln(l - f) [ispersiott \$trettgtheltirt0 bll Phnse 0.1 0.22 0.36 0.51 0.69 0.92 1.20 r.61 2.302 28 37 M 50 55 60 67 73 86 1 1 5

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
