This question covers the use of catalysts as way to improve the efficiency of industrial chemical processes.
Therefore, please do the following:
1. Run the Heterogeneous Catalysis simulator for different initial conditions (initial partial pressures of species A, B, C, and D) to get the reaction rates;
2. Study the influence of each initial condition on the reaction rate;
3. Choose the right rate equation;
4. Propose the mechanism and the rate determining step (rds) accordingly;
5. Analyse the results.
Your report will contain:
a. Introduction: explain why the use of catalyst allows better process performances;
b. Simulation results: table, all graphs, reaction rate;
c. Proposed mechanism and reasons for the choice of rds;
The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about running heterogeneous catalysis simulator for different initial conditions and giving conclusions.
