CO2 Partial Pressure

Amazing Essays
With A = 52.4, and B =119.8. Moreover, some previous works overlooked that the increase in temperature is always accompanied by the increase in water vapour pressure, and lower CO2 partial pressure respectively. Consequently, according to Henry’s law, the amount of dissolved CO2 in water is also decreased. Thus, the increase in temperature will increase the kinetics of precipitation, and also reduce the supersaturation of FeCO3 as a result of lesser amount of dissolved CO2 in the water.
B. Pressure
Effect of CO2 partial pressure (PCO2) is related to solution pH as well. In the condition where scale-free CO2 corrosion occurs, the increase of PCO2 will increase the corrosion rate. This can be explained by the increment of H2CO3 concentration

Sour corrosion also occur as dry corrosion which means that corrosion can still occur in the absence of water. Which therefore means that the school of thought which holds that corrosion can be combated by dehydration was a farce.This can be apparent in the casing annulus as H2S gas produced with water vapor will corrode the outside of the tubing and casing.H2S is known to accelerate the effect of localized corrosion, crevice corrosion and pitting corrosion. On dissociation H2S releases its protons in two step reactions as shown in subsection …show more content…
An ideal working system that will minimize the effect of corrosion should be maintain at a pH range ranging from 9 – 10 this pH range is called the passive zone as alredy discussed in the previous section.
Pressure effect
Analogous to the effect of CO2 partial pressure (PCO2), The partial pressure of H2S is also related to the solution pH as well. In the condition where scale-free H2S corrosion occurs, the increase of PH2S will increase the corrosion rate. This can be explained by the increment of H2SO4 concentration as PH2S increase that will lead to accelerated cathode reaction. At high pH, where FeS formation is favorable, the increase in PH2S will increase sulfide ion and sulfide ion concentration, followed by higher super saturation of FeS. High iron sulfide super saturation enhances precipitation and scale formation. Nesic et al. showed that when PH2S is increased, pH at the surface initially increases due to corrosion and release of Fe2+, and then decreases since precipitation of FeS occurs rapidly. They also concluded that at constant pH, as PH2S increases, FeS precipitation can increase faster than the corrosion

    3.2 Effects of particle size The particle size of the catalyst was highly influenced on the reaction rate, when the particle size of the catalyst was decreased, therefore their surface areas was increased and the ratio of catalyst surface and reactant volume was playing a crucial role for controlling the reaction kinetics. The reaction was takes place on the surface of a substance, increasing the surface area should increases the quantity of the substance that is available to react, and will thus increase the rate of the reaction as well. The size and shape of the CuMnOx catalyst particles was a transaction between the minimize pore diffusion effects in the catalyst particles. The particle size provides information about the reaction behavior…

    It is assumed that and throughout the boundary layer. Physically, increasing both the temperature and the concentration gradients provokes a higher instability at the interface according to reducing the surface tension. This means that increasing both the temperature and the concentration surface tension coefficients and reduces the temperature and the concentration profiles, as shown in Figs.8 and 11. Similar result was obtained experimentally by Aubeterre et al.[26]. This experimental study deduced that the temperature gradient destabilizes the free surface.…

    With that being said, both have the same extent of symmetry and the Atoms drawings are rather similar. Furthermore, the rise in temperature shows that the cell parameter will increase greatly, leading to an overall increase in volume. However, as temperature rises up to 980K, there will be a great difference in terms of the structure of the crystals. This would thus lead to a decrease in the c/a ratio as temperature increases, showing an inverse relationship between the two. Hence, when the temperature rises from low (240K) to a high of (980K) the refined structural parameters would thus change from α to β.…

    For MR, the adsorption is high in acidic medium and increases with the increase in solution pH. This result may be due to change in surface charge of both the dyes molecules and functional groups of adsorbent. More absorption capacity is well worked on 4 & 6 pH. As the pH is increases, however, the overall surface charge on the cells will become positive, which will promote reaction with Methyl Red as an anionic dye through electrostatic forces of attraction. At pH 2 ,the removal capacity is low due the structure of methyl red and iron particles.…

    These will lead to an increase in the conversions of gas oil and subsequent increase in the yield of the products. There will also be an increase in the sensible heat accompanying the catalyst, hence there is an initial increase in the riser outlet temperature but as reaction proceeds, the increased cracking reaction causes an increase in the heat absorbed and results in a decrease in the outlet temperature until steady state is attained (Akpa et al.…

    When chromium is doped in cobalt ferrites, a partial replacement of Fe3+ ions by Cr3+ ions take place in octahedral (B) site because, Cr ions have strong octahedral site preference. As a consequence, the substitution of Cr in Cobalt Ferrites would decrease the number of Fe3+/Fe2+ ion pairs present at the octahedral sites resulting in a decrease in hopping of ions and increase in resistivity. The increase in resistivity may also be due to the increase in activation energy (Table 2) with increase in Cr concentration. This increase in activation energy indicates that the Cr ions entering into octahedral sites impedes the electron hopping between Fe2+ and Fe3+ ions for electrical conduction by occlusion of Fe2+ and Fe3+ transformation. This led to an increase in resistivity and a decrease in the conduction.…

    Through this lab, we acknowledged how polarity, boiling point, bonding functional groups of a compound determine the retention time, the time it takes form the molecule to be eluted. As the hydrophobic interactions increase between the mobile phase and the stationary phase of the gas column, the retention time increases, the more non-polar substances spend time in the gas chromatograph for a longer time. Boiling point also plays a major factor in how fast the eluates are ejected from the gas column. Also in this experiment, we learned how to calculate the thermodynamic parameters with the measured retention times. From the graphs it was evident that in a condensation process: reaction releases energy (-ΔH°), becomes more ordered (-ΔS°) and is spontaneous (-ΔG°) at low temperatures.…

    The tilt angle is one of the significant factor which will lead to tetrahedral distortion. Tetrahedral distortion occurs when there is a change in the angle and also the change in the length of the bonds. The tilt angle as mentioned in paragraph 2 above, is inversely correlated with temperature. Another factor which led to tetrahedral distortion is due to the change in bond length and the change in O-PO angle which defers according to temperature. This means that when the temperature reaches roughly about 980K, the Fe—O—P bridging angles will increase and the tilt angles will decrease strongly.…

    Since elevated temperature makes a metal more active, it will become anodic for rest of the metal. So an electrochemical corrosion cell might cause fast corrosion on metals that are at elevated temperatures. 2) pH of the Electrolyte The ph of the electrolyte in an electrochemical corrosion cell affects the speed of the corrosion by speeding up or slowing down the chemical reactions at the anode and/or the cathode. The ph of an electrolyte is basically the concentration of hydrogen ions. A ph.…

    Effect of temperature on alkaline phosphatase activity Temperature can have a positive or negative affect on the enzymatic activity of alkaline phosphatase, depending on the extent to which the temperature is increased. In our experiment, as the temperature was increased from 25°C to 45°C, we saw a fairly constant increase in the activity of alkaline phosphatase. This can be seen in our graph ( figure 2). Once the temperature was further increased from 45°C to 60°C however, we saw a decrease in the enzyme activity, such that the enzyme was less active at 60°C than it was found to be at 25°C. From this data we can conclude that the apparent optimum temperature for alkaline phosphatase to be…
