Test 3

Postby jillian1k » Sat Mar 03, 2018 11:15 am

Is it likely that we'll have to integrate eqns or use them to explain differences b/w higher order reactions for problems on test 3? I know normally Dr. Lavelle shows us derivations and integrations to help us understand the background and foundation of a topic, not because it's what he's testing us on. However, I'm wondering if it's a different case for this chapter since the integrations are being brought up so often and are the key differences between zero, first, and second order rxns.

My TA said that we should definitely know the derivations

Yeah you should definitely know all of the derivation/integrations that we do in class. Many (if not all of the ones you need to know) are on the constants and equations sheet already.

As has already been stated, knowing the derivations really adds another layer of depth to your understanding of the topic. It's great to have an equation sheet to give you the formulas, and for most of the problems you do it's nice to have them on demand, but knowing the way these equations came about really allows you to conceptualize the main points behind the unit. Often times, there are concept questions asked about proportionality, or how certain terms are related, what an equation is referring to, and being able to piece together how all of these concepts are interwoven through the derivation process is extremely helpful.

My TA also said it was necessary to know how to derive all the equations for test 3.

which equations do we need to be able to derive?
