After completing Chapter 7 of the text and associated
DVD material the reader will be able to:
 Determine the reaction order and specific reaction rate from experimental data
obtained from either batch or flow reactors.
 Describe how to use equalarea differentiation, polynomial fitting, numerical difference formulas and regression to analyze experimental data to determine the rate law.
 Use regression software to evaluate the rate law parameters given experimental data.
 Describe how the methods of half lives, and of initial rate, are used to analyze rate data.
 Describe two or more types of laboratory reactors used to obtain rate law data
along with their advantages and disadvantages.
