The sorption data was analyzed using linear form of all the isotherm equations Models having high correlation coefficient (R2 ) values are considered best fit to represent the sorption data. The Freundlich isotherm holds for multilayer non-ideal adsorption on heterogeneous surface and is represented by the following empirical equation: qe = KF Ce 1/n Where, KF = adsorption equilibrium constant (mg/g) 1/n= adsorption intensity of dye onto the adsorbent Ce =…

  • The Equilibrium Interest Rates, R, As A Function Of Y = K.

    order condition is [xj ] : 2 L1 Y xj 1 r = 0. It follows that xj = r 2 1 1 LY and it is clear that xj = x for all j since the right hand side does not depend on j. Plugging this on the inverse demand function we obtain r (3) pj = , and again it is clear that pj = p for all j. 1 Exercise 2 Use the results from the previous exercise and the fact that in equilibrium Ax = K to calculate: a) (5 points) The equilibrium interest rates, r, as a function of…
