### Kc(equilibrium constant) and Kp

Its given in the book that at 12.18kelvin Kc=Kp. How is that equated from the equation Kp= Kc(RT)^∆ng. I am unable to sort it out, please guide me in to the topic....

### Does the rate function of an elementary reaction depend on the other steps of the mechanism?

A question came to my mind. Is the rate function of an elementary reaction influenced by the other steps of the mechanism? I wonder whether the shape (not the values) of the function $r(c)$ belonging ...

### Deriving kinetic equations for a complex reaction system

I have a system of protein reactions that I've derived differential equations for the kinetics of. I'm using them to run simulations to fit the rate parameters, but the simulations at present are ...

### The effect of reactant concentration on when equilibrium is established

Take the equation $$\ce{A(g) <=> B(g)}$$ where the reaction is first order with respect to A. The rate law is thus $$\frac{\mathrm d[\ce{A}]}{\mathrm dt}=-k[\ce{A}]$$ Say you run the reaction, ...

### Effect of His-tag on enzyme activity

In my biochemistry laboratory class, I designed an experiment to study the effect of a His-tag on enzyme activity. First, I measured the activity of the His-tagged enzyme. Then, I cut off the His-tag (...

### How does changing the concentrations of intermediate products/reactants change the rate law?

A = CH2(CN)2 B = CH(CN)2- C = BrCH(CN)2 The rate law above is derived from applying the steady state approximation. I am trying to work out how to modify the rate law to accomodate the following ...

### Factoring in kinetic equations [duplicate]

The mechanism for the linear chain reaction of H2+Br2 -> HBr is: If we presume steady state for the chain carrier Br*, we recieve this equation: My question is in regards to the '2' factor marked ...
