Determine the average rate of change of B from t=0 s to t=382 s.
Concepts and reason
This is based upon the concept of chemical kinetics.
Rate of the reaction tells how quickly or slowly a reaction will take place. It also tells how quickly or slowly a reactant will disappear or a product will be generated.
Average rate of a reaction is expressed in terms of reactant and product as follows:
Consider a reaction:
Here, a, b, x and y are the stoichiometric coefficients of P, Q, M and N respectively. P and Q are the reactants and M and N are the product of the reaction.
Rate of reaction ® is defined as the rate of disappearance of reactant or rate of production of products. So, Mathematically, it is represented as
Average rate of reaction is represented as,
For the reaction as follows:
Expression for average rate, r is as follows
Expression (1) is as follows:
