After completing Chapter 7 of the text and associated DVD material the reader will be able to:
  • Determine the reaction order and specific reaction rate from experimental data obtained from either batch or flow reactors.
  • Describe how to use equal-area differentiation, polynomial fitting, numerical difference formulas and regression to analyze experimental data to determine the rate law.
  • Use regression software to evaluate the rate law parameters given experimental data.
  • Describe how the methods of half lives, and of initial rate, are used to analyze rate data.
  • Describe two or more types of laboratory reactors used to obtain rate law data along with their advantages and disadvantages.
