Problem 4

  1. Investigate a second catalyst material, catalyst B for its reaction behavior.
    :a. Is the rate of reaction the same for catalyst B as it is for catalyst A? Does the rate law you generated in problems #1-2 succeed or fail to capture the reaction kinetics for this catalyst?
    :b. Can you determine what chemical/physical phenomenon is causing the difference in rate? :c. To mitigate this problem with catalyst B, which square well potential parameter(s) would you adjust? Could this parameter affect other aspects of the reaction chemistry?
