hChemical kinetics deals with the rates of chemical processes. Any chemical process is considered to consist of number of one or more single-step step which are known as elementary reactions elementary processes or elementary steps. Elementary reactions may involve dissociation or isomerisation of a single reactant molecule, which is referred as unimolecular step. Also there may be a single collision between two molecules, which is referred as a bimolecular step.
It should be noted that majority of the reactions that are written as a single reaction equation actually consists of a series of elementary steps or process.
The main objectives for the study of chemical kinetics are:
(a) To analyze the sequence of elementary steps giving rise…

This experiment focused on the concept of chemical kinetics, which describes the speed at which a chemical reaction occurs and the amount of reactant or product remaining after a specific period of time. Kinetics is important in analyzing the rates of certain species and reactions, and is a crucial technique to predict different reactions. Kinetics is…
removal efficiency increases with increase of zero-valent nanoparticle dosase. At 0.3 nZVI , URC is maximum.

The first order rate equation of Lagergren is one of the most widely used for the sorption of a solute from liquid solution and is represented as:
ln(q_e-q_t )=ln(q_e )- k_1 t
whereq_e is the mass of metal adsorbed at…
To examine the enzyme kinetics of chymotrypsin during the catalysis of the synthetic substrate p-nitrophenyl acetate (NPA). Initially, observe the magnitude of the initial burst with regards to the enzyme concentration. Secondly, the analysis of the steady state deacylation rate with regards to the pH of the reaction mixture. Chymotrypsin catalysis is a process that proceeds with two steps, an initial fast step involving the covalent modification…
The concentration of CDCL and CSER is obtained by solving equation (1) and (2)

A1 and A2are absorbance of mixture at λ1 and λ2respectively.
ax1 and ax2 are absorptivities of DCL at λ1 and λ2, respectively,
ay1 and ay2 are absorptivities of SER at λ1 and λ2, respectively,
CXandCYare concentrations of DCL and SER, respectively.
Concentration of DCL and SER in the powder mixture is found by using equation (3) and…
calculated by Gaussian, given in Hartrees; we convert and report these in kcal mol-1. Ground state systems are local minima marked by no imaginary frequencies, while transition states are local maxima containing exactly one imaginary frequency corresponding to the reaction of interest.
As we used DFT to optimize distinct molecular geometries, we encountered errors with the program that occurred for several reasons. These include but are not limited to incorrect textual input data files,…
1. Chemical reactions involved in the oxidation of benzene (adapted from Lupușor et al., 1981)
In order to achieve such an analysis, a simplified mathematical model of the reactor was used considering a pseudo-homogeneous, one-dimensional, plug-flow reactor. Model equations are presented in the Table 1 in terms of the mass balance of the considered chemical species, heat and moment balance, with the rate constants given in Table 2:
Table 1. The fixed bed multi-tubular reactor model used for…
Chemical kinetics are governed by the mathematics of systems of differential equations (Thermodynamics and Kinetics). This means that the rate of any chemical reaction is determined by the type, and amount, of reactants present. Note the rate of a reaction is how fast it occurs. Furthermore, such rate equations can either be distinctively linear or non-linear when graphed. Non-linear equations are supposedly more complex as they generally react to small changes within its parameters…
How does the increase of concentrated hydrochloric acid affect the rate of the chemical reaction with sodium thiosulphate?
Background to the Research question
Chemical reaction involves the chemical change of atoms and molecules, it will occur when two or more molecules interact with each other and the molecule will change. Thus, bonds between atoms are broken down and then new molecules are formed.
Hydrochloric Acid and Sodium thiosulfate are both colourless and clear…
To enable them to react we can either change the shape of the curve or move the activation energy (explain later on keep reading).
One of which is to increase the temperature of the reaction. As temperature increases the rate of reaction increases. This is because the particles becomes more energetic causing them to have more kinetic energy as a result they move faster and more collisions occur with the required Ea (collision frequency increases). Using this knowledge, to speed up a reaction,…
