Steady State Approximation

Postby Julia Go 2L » Sat Mar 16, 2019 10:32 pm

Do we have to know how to use steady state approximations? I remember that in lecture it was mentioned but not really covered?

i think dr. lavelle said that he wouldn't make us do it because the math is too complicated.

I believe Professor Lavelle said in lecture that we will only be using the pre-equilibrium approach to solve problems. He mentioned the steady state approximation to make us familiar with it because it is a method that is more commonly used in the textbook.

The steady state is a much more complicated method compared to preequilibrium and therefore we won’t be required to know if for the class, preequilibrium gives us sufficient accuracy for the scope of the class
