Eyring Factors: An Analysis Of Dielectric Loss Factor Values

Good Essays
The dielectric loss factor was the most influenstic parameter in this microwave spectrum. The loss factor values increased as a function of frequency and slight modification in spectrum on changing the solute concentration. The ε˝ values obtained in our experiments are almost similar to our earlier work[43]. Above 8GHz the frequency dispersion spectrum of ε΄& ε˝ were superimposed with each other. The spacing between the dielectric values in dispersion spectrum could be attributed to the relative percentage of solute-solvent interaction which showed significantly more clustered structure than either stearic or stearic – nhexanol formation.
The thermodynamic parameters are evaluated using Eyring equation is given below

The Gibb’s free energy change is the driving force and the fundamental criterion of spontaneity. Physical absorption is to be a spontaneous thermodynamic process, mush have a negative value. The thermodynamics parameters of adsorption relaxation strength (Δε) and dielectric activation (ΔF) of stearic acid complex have been calculated and the results are tabulated (3a-3f) using this formula(47) Δε = ε0 - ε∞ and ΔF = ε0 – ε’. The thermodynamic parameters of adsorption of stearic acid complex are tabulated(3a-3f). The Gibb’s free energy change of adsorption was found to be in range of -2.6 to -0.05KJ/mole. These results indicate that the adsorption of stearic acid complex is feasible and spontaneous. The enthalpy(ΔH) and entropy(ΔS) were found negative and positive values respectively. The negative value of enthalpy confirmed that the adsorption of stearic acid complex is an exothermic process. This can be due to energy released after the adsorption process being higher than that need to the solvent molecules. The negative value of enthalpy indicates that the process is exothermic and the physisorption behavior may be physical in nature and it can be easily reversed by supplying the heat equal to the adsorption system. The positive value of entropy significantly suggests that the random orientation in solute-solvent complex or interface between solid/solution during the adsorption. When ΔS is positive, increased spontaneity is favoured in the molecular movement. The negative value of enthalpy and positive value of entropy signifies that molecular dipoles are spontaneously and allinged oriented at all

    Fig. 2 indicates that open circuit potential of Alloy 1, 2 (especially Alloy2) is more negative than that of Al. It can be seen that the potential of the Al electrode shifts in the positive direction and achieves a stable value of about -0.82 V. This is due to the formation of natural oxide layer on the Al surface which is stable in saline environments and leads to ennoblement of the…

    8a shows a dense matrix with some small pores distributed on material. Fig. 8b shows L60 matrix with higher porosity with larger voids when compared to R. These observations are in accordance with water absorption, voids and capillary water absorption results, which showed that the binder with WTS increased the porosity and decrease the capillary suction of the mortars (caused by the larger pores in sample). Both images revealed homogenous materials, indicating efficient mixing. Fig.…

    The entropy of the process was determined from the transition enthalpy and temperature values. Based on the positive enthalpy and entropy values, the reaction appears nonspontaneous. The Gibbs free energy, however, is a better indicator or spontaneity. In order to calculate Gibbs free energy, As the temperature increases the Gibbs free energy decreases. This shows a movement towards disorder with increase of temperature.…

    This resistive force retards the motion of the fluid and enhances its temperature. This effect is clear for the velocity in Fig.5 and for the temperature as well as the concentration in Figs. 8 and 10, respectively. Also, these figures illustrate that the magnetic field decreases the film thickness. The effect of the Schmidt number is highlighted in Figs.7 and 12 for the temperature and concentration distributions, respectively.…

    Solubility increases with high temperature and more agitation (stirring). The less the solution is stirred or if there’s a decrease in temperature, the solution becomes less soluble and forms a solid at the bottom of the solution. The forward reaction is endothermic because the deltaHrxn was positive, meaning that the solution was absorbing heat rather than releasing heat. An increase in Kc shows the increase of solubility in borax solution. If there’s a decrease in Kc values, that means there is a decrease in solubility.…

    This can also be seen by the value of the rate constants where k1 k2. Additionally the process of phenol decomposition by direct ozonation is different than that of indirect ozonation. Degradation of phenol by OH radicals favors the formation of aromatic by products, following the formation of organic acids and thereafter partial mineralization [26]. Because the OH radical is a powerful and unselective oxidant, raising the initial Ph values increased TOC removals. The alkaline environment presented a higher degradation rate for the whole duration of 80 minutes than that of the initial pH (pH8.9) and acidic pH (pH4).…

    The principal contribution to the thermal expansion arises from the angular variations manifested by the changes in the two symmetrically independent inter-tetrahedral Fe-O-P bridging angles and the correlated tilt angles. The temperature dependence of the volume strongly follows the behavior of the average θ and δ angles as a function of temperature and there is a preferential expansion along alpha. The c/a ratio decreases from 2.2356 at 294 Kelvin to 2.2069 at 969 Kelvin. The initial decrease of the c/a ratio is in fact greater than that observed for any alpha quartz isotype due to the greater average angular variations in…

    From the experimental study it is found that the heat transfer rate in notched fins is more than the un-notched fins. The average heat transfer coefficient increases with the heater input. It is clear that for the given heater input, average heat transfer coefficient of notched array is 30 to 40% higher than corresponding un-notched array. The average heat transfer coefficient for notched fin is better than un-notched fins. Also the copper gives more heat transfer rate than aluminum plate.…

    There are two hydrogen bonds which break off, and then they recombine along the a-plane in order to allow for the movement of one proton. In Phase II, the “V” shaped crystal structure allows for independent movement of protons, hereby causing superprotonic conductivity to take place. This is only made possible by the re-orientation of the hydrogen bonds. The protons movement is possible through the breaking and reformation of hydrogen bonds, as the protons are diffused through this crystal structure. Hence, as a result, we can conclude that the lower the crystal symmetry of a crystal structure is, the higher the proton transport efficiency.…
