Problem 1.
See Levine problem 11.1. (a) True. The activity of component i in a reaction mixture is defined in terms of an exponential function, which is di mensionless: ai = e(i -i )/RT (Levine e

Problem 1.
See Levine problem 12.1. (a) True. Addition of a solute B at constant T and P to pure solvent A decreases the mole fraction xA of the solvent. A Since A > 0 (Levine eq. 4.90), then add

Problem 1.
In a chain reaction, the chain carriers are reactive intermediates that occur in chain propagation steps (Levine p. 565). A step that generates chain carriers from relatively unreactiv

Problem 1.
See Levine problem 14.12. (a) True. Taking the derivative of E (Levine eq. 14.41) with respect to the activity aj of substance j gives E /aj = -j RT /nF aj , which is negative when j >
