An activated monomer is obtained by the reaction ... . Higher molecular weight polymers are obtained by the reaction ... . This Demonstration solves the system of second-order rate equations for user-set values of the activation rate constant, ... , and the polymerization rate constant, ... . In addition, the monomer and polymers concentrations, up to ... , are plotted versus time. The mass balance equations are ... , ... , for ... , ... . You can easily see by looking at the equations that ... is a decreasing function of time. Thus, after a certain time ... and all species reach a steady-state value because the polymerization reactions will stop when the monomer is exhausted.
