    Constant volume combustion

    I am in the process of designing a new engine and would like to get a ball park estimate of the combustion process before building the first prototype. One of the design features of the engine is true constant volume combustion. From the limited research I have performed, it seems most assume...

    rydberg constant

    After carrying out a spectroscopy experiment I am asked to calculate 2 values of the rydberg constant from my graph of wavenumber against 1/n2. How do I go about doing this? I have error bars so I made 2 lines (1 using the upper error and 1 using the lower errors) and then I calculated 2...

    Some chemistry questions I need help with

    1. a)You put [H2] = 0,70M, [I2] = 0,70M and [HI] =1,50M. And the K value is 49. Decide the equilibrium concentrations. H2 + I2 <-> 2HI b) Which concentration HI gets inserted if the iodine concentration at a new equilibrium is 0,42Molar. The K value is still 49. c) What happens with the...

    Micheles Menton constant

    Hi..... In the graph to determine the Km value, why is Vo units in umoles/min but substrate concentration is in mM? Shouldn't the Vo be umoles/min and substrate concentation be uM ? I think both the initial velocity and substrate concentration should have the same molar units because while doing...

    Thermodynamics Question: Finding Equilibrium Constant

    Calculate the standard free energy change for the combustion of methanol at 25 deg. C. 2 CH3OH(l) + 3 O2(g) -> 2 CO2(g) + 4 H2O(g) My answer was -1.37E3 kJ, which was right. Now the part I need some guidance on: If instead of the theoretical 2 mol, the actual reaction uses reaction...

    Rate constant

    Is it correct that the rate constant is 2,5 M^-1·m^-1 ? I have calculated this by reading the graph, go 1 to the right and 0,5 up. 1 to the right is equal to 25 mints and 0,5 up equals to 0,1. Then i multiply 0,5 with 25 =2,5 2,5 M^-1·m^-1 See attached file, thanks in advance is it also...

    Help with spectrophotometric determination of equilibrium constant?

    So we had this experiment, we used Fe3+ and SCN- to produce [Fe(SCN)]2+, and I know how to get the best fitting line for the calibration, but how do I get the equilibrium concentrations of the products and the reactants when determining Keq's of unknown solutions? Also, can H2O be used as a...
