1. Determine the dependence of the rate of reaction (CO2 production) on the concentrations of the reactants (reaction orders) for isothermal catalytic CO oxidation at 600 K on catalyst A. To help discern the concentration effects, it may be useful to graph the rate of CO2 production vs. each species’ concentration. Propose a catalytic rate law (not just a power law model) for this system. To accomplish this task, you will need to have reaction rate information, which can come from an analysis of real-time simulation data (one option is the method of initial rates[ref]). Determine rate and equilibrium constants for you proposed rate law for the given catalyst A system at 600 K, using the data collected.
