Wouldn't it be like a factor of two? Since KP= (theta)/(1-theta) Then the dissociation process needs two surface sites so in a pure system then KP/2 = (theta)/(1-theta). Plugging that into the competitive adsorption isotherm then the denominator would be something like 1 +KP(a) + (KP(b)/2)

If it's not like that then doesn't it depend on the value of K? So I don't think it would be as simple as square the KP(b). Like what if the dissociation reagent binds suuuupper slowly (the equilibrium constant is less than that of the adsorbant you want), so even though it takes up two surface sites it might be negligible compared to the actual adsorbant you want.

In general poisons have really high K values so then I don't think it would be just square the dissociation reagent terms, but it would depend on the value of K.

Dunno if that helps but the TL;DR is that I don't think it's just square root, but it depends on the value of K more than anything.

Can confirm, just did this for my first pair of skis, totally worth it

Which one's which?

The orange(?) one is the T-Cell, and the blue one is the cancer cell.

Omg it's Napoléon from "Le petit Napoléon"

I'm taking an intro to geology course on minerals/gems and there seems to be like everything in South Africa: PGE's, diamonds etc. What is it about RSA's location(?) that makes it so mineral rich?

The other one is due to a structure called kimberlites and they are famously rich in diamond. Kimberlites are reasonably rare and South Africa happens to have them.

Would it be logical to find similar structures in South America?

Kimberlite can be found anywhere that has old rocks (archean?) that support the formation of diamond, I don't think South America has the right conditions to produce Kimberlite. South America has been known mostly for the mining of gold, emerald and silver.

I'm pretty sure there is a way to change the default in the program, so that every time you open it, it's set to Times New Roman 12pt

So we were doing a chemistry lab and the question comes up, how would astronauts pipette in space? Is there like a zero-g micropipette or Pasteur pipette? If not then how would you perform precise experiments in space?

Is the chloroform organic or aqueous? In a liquid-liquid extraction, what are you trying to do? What's the point of having the two liquids in the first place? Remember that like dissolves like; the example you provided is good, the phenols will be carried with the organic layer because they are organic. But why do you care about stuff getting carried into the organic layer?

Amines are organic or aqueous? Based on that where could try end up?

Acids are organic or aqueous? I which layer will they be based on that?

Try putting the units into the equation, remember that absorbance is a unit-less quantity.

Edit: spelling and check your math it looks like your friend punched the wrong stuff into the calculator, but at least the equation/numbers are right

Sick art, reminds me of Gorillaz

Will the new operation reset ranks like always?

Quick question for OP, can you see what you are trying to hit with it IRL? Because in game I can only see the back of the D-50 and nothing else when I ADS.
