Describe about the The Regulation of Cellular Systems?



In this assignment, we have studied the chemical process in a mixing tank, where hydrogen peroxide is mixed with water containing metal ions, where a decomposition reaction of hydrogen peroxide takes place.

The tank is a closed tank with two inlets and one outlet, which is the overflow outlet, and keeps the level of solution to be 1 litre.

The equation of decomposition of hydrogen peroxide is a first order reaction, ad all the analysis and simulations has been done accordingly.

Task 1

The differential equation of a first order chemical reaction is:

dC/dt = -kC = r

where, r = rate of reaction 

C = concentration of the reactant

t = time  

k = koexp(-Ea/RT) = reaction rate constant

Solving the equation, we have,

C             = Cin exp(-kt)

where, Cin = initial concentration

Task 2

Now, it has been given that,

Cin = 6M

K = 0.0015/sec

In-flow rate of H2O2 = 0.5 litres/sec

Thus, the required flow rate is,

Flow rate = ((0.5x6)/4)exp(-0.0015t)

Thus, we see that this flow rate is a function of time.

Task 3


Line Number

Calculation of time taken to reach 90% of target


The code snippet has been attached below:

%Concentration Analysis

clear all %clear all variables

close all %close all figures

syms t; %declaration of variable

syms C; %declaration of variable

Ci = 6; %initial concentration

k = 0.0015; %rate in sec^-1

f1 = 1/C; %LHS of function

g1 = int(f1,C); %integration of LHS

f2 = -k; %RHS of Function

g2 = int(f2,t); %integration of RHS

C = Ci*exp(g2); %Concentration solution

C %print result

Cn = ((Ci*0.5)/4)*exp(g2); %actual concentration in molar form


Cout = C - Cn %Molar flow out of the tank to maintain the concentration

rate = -k*C %Rate of decomposition of hydrogen peroxide


figure %to start a figure

subplot(4,1,1) %to plot multiple graph in one figure

ezplot(C,[0 10]);xlabel('Time:s');ylabel('Concentration:M');legend('Molar flow into Tank');


ezplot(Cn,[0 10]);xlabel('Time:s');ylabel('Concentration:M');legend('Actual conc. in Tank');


ezplot(Cout,[0 10]);xlabel('Time:s');ylabel('Concentration:M');legend('Molar Flow out of Tank');


ezplot(rate,[0 10]);xlabel('Time:s');ylabel('Rate:M/s');legend('Rate of Decomposition');

time = - (log((0.9*4)/6))/0.0015 %time taken to reach 90% of target concentration

The time received from the function is: 340.5504 sec
