23). 25) can be combined to produce a rate equation for DO consumption for a system with 1 kg of water and 1 m2 of pyrite surface area. 5. If α is set equal to zero in Eq. 21), the resulting relationship can be rearranged to give the time needed to completely consume the DO. 27) This can be verified by using Eq. 1) of p as a function of time. Unopposed reactions (n = 1) The above model applies for all values of n other than one. However firstorder reactions (n = 1) are relatively common and the integrated form of a first-order unopposed rate equation is much simpler.

The effect of activity, concentration, or partial pressure of the reacting species on the rate appears in the rate equation as explicit terms each raised to an appropriate power. The product of these terms is the driving force for the reaction, so that large values of activity, partial pressure, or concentration produce large values of r. The exponents for the concentration, activity, or partial pressure terms are called partial orders (ni) and the sum of those exponents for a rate equation is the overall reaction order, no.

Graph showing the concentration versus time values for 1 m2 of quartz surface dissolving into 1 kg of water. The vertical lines show the time needed to reach 50% of the equilibrium concentration for each temperature. Because H4SiO4 is an uncharged species, we can assume that its activity coefficient is near 1, and because the activity of quartz and water are 1 we can set aH4 SiO4 e = K . This allows Eq. 91) to be rewritten in terms of the equilibrium constant and the precipitation rate constant.
