    kinetics question - write expression for elementary reactions

    Consider the following mechanism comprised of elementary reactions: A + B -> 2C ... k1 2C -> A + B ... k-1 C + 2A -> D + A ... k2 D + B -> 3B ... k3 What is correct expression for d[B]/dt ? answer: d[B]/dt=–k1[A][B] + k-1[C]2 + 2k3[D][B]. How do you work through the problem to come up...
