Phosgene (COCl ) is formed by CO and Cl reacting in the presence of activated charcoal: At T = 303:8 K the rate of formation of phosgene in the presence of 1 gram of charcoal is where C denotes concentration in mol/L. (a) Suppose the charge to a 3.00-liter batch reactor is 1.00 g of charcoal and a gas initially containing 60.0 mole% CO and the balance Cl at 303.8 K and 1 atm. Calculate the initial concentrations (mol/L) of both reactants, neglecting the volume occupied by the charcoal. Then, letting CP(t) be the concentration of phosgene at an arbitrary time t, derive relations for C and C in terms of C . (b) Write a differential balance on phosgene and show that it simplifies to Provide an initial condition for this equation. (c) A plot of C versus t starts at C = 0 and asymptotically approaches a maximum value. Explain how you could predict that behavior from the form of the equation of Part (b). Without attempting to solve the differential equation, determine the maximum value of CP. (d) Starting with the equation of Part (b), derive an expression for the time required to achieve a 75% conversion of the limiting reactant. Your solution should have the form t = a definite integral. (e) The integral you derived in Part (d) can be evaluated analytically; however, more complex rate laws than the one given for the phosgene formation reaction would yield an integral that must be evaluated numerically. One procedure is to evaluate the integrand at a number of points between the limits of integration and to use a quadrature formula such as the trapezoidal rule or Simpson’s rule (Appendix A.3) to estimate the value of the integral. Use a spreadsheet to evaluate the integrand of the integral of Part (c) at np equally spaced points between and including the limits of integration, where n is an odd number, and then to evaluate the integral using Simpson’s rule. Perform the calculation for n = 5; 21; and 51. What can you conclude about the number of points needed to obtain a result accurate to three significant figures?

Frequently asked questions
Is your service confidential?
When you place an order with our company, we ask you to provide us with such personal information as your name, phone number, and email address. We need this data to keep you updated on the important things related to your order or account.
Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?
We complete each paper from scratch and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check it for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism detection systems that are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.
We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness.
Is there a money-back guarantee? If yes, how can I receive a refund?
You can certainly get your money back in several cases. You can receive a full refund if you have paid for your order twice or if you have placed two identical orders. In case your paper was late or the quality of the paper does not correspond to your expectations, you will get compensation for these issues.
Do you keep a database of pre-written essays?
No, we do not have such a database. All papers you order from us are written from scratch. This means your paper is unique and has never been published before—neither will it be published after we deliver it to you.
When will my custom paper be done?
While placing an order with WritersHub, you can choose a period of time within which a paper should be delivered to you. The countdown until the specified deadline starts automatically from the moment we receive your payment in our system. For example, if you pay for your order at 6pm on Monday and choose a 3-day delivery option, you will receive your custom paper by 6pm on Thursday.
Remember that a writer needs a sufficient amount of time in order to conduct thorough research. Therefore, please choose the most suitable deadline when you place an order. Moreover, the later you need your paper to be delivered to you, the cheaper it will be. Thus, you will be able to save your money while your writer will have enough time to work on your order and ensure its quality.
Make sure you upload all the additional materials at the very beginning. If you fail to do that, the deadline for your order will be postponed as well.
I haven’t received my custom paper by the deadline. What should I do?
Let us know immediately about that. You can do it by writing a message on Facebook or email us. Our support manager will carefully examine your order and will assist you with it right away. The reasons for late delivery may vary from time to time. It can happen that you have entered a wrong email address or your spam filter does not allow you to receive emails from us. It is also possible that the writer is waiting for your reply and can not continue working without your assistance, or we are checking the work for plagiarism. Whatever the case may be, contact us if you have any problems with getting your order on time.
