Ozone Decomposition Kinetics
- Pp. 119-130 (12)Thomas J. Manning and Aurora P. Gramatges
In this exercise students will review some applications of an important industrial chemical. From this review it will become obvious why understanding basic physical and chemical parameters of chemical species are important. Students will also use existing experimental data, involving the decomposition of ozone to form oxygen, to determine reaction order and rate constant. Students will perform the calculations and graphing components of the exercise in a spreadsheet advancing their computational capabilities.
