|Abstract: ||kinetic and thermodynamic investigation of th~ - sorption process of '
anadium by activated charcoal was carried out in three phases.
The first phase of the process was the v~r~a~i8n o(,vC;\acd!~,JJ)., ~oncentration at
constant temperature and weight of char~8~,tr\;I~Wi~I' '~I'I:~~f~~i~i~~i~n:;of",;':'
the order of the reaction with respect to vanadium concentration and this was'
found to be first order.
The second phase was the vari~tion of the weight of activated charcoal at
constant temperature and concentration and the order of reaction will respect to
the amount charcoal was also found to be first figures 6 and 7.
The third phase was the variation of temperature with a fixed concentration of
vanadium and fixed weight of activated charcoal which enable the
determination of activation energy (~Ea) of the prpcess. the activation energy
was found to be 8.9598 kj/mole. other parameters like heat of reaction, free
energy change, rate constants at various temperature were also determination as
will be seen in the table of summary of results. _
The ge.neral rate of the sorption process of vanadium by activated charcoal was
a found to be
= 1.3 866 exp· AE/rt [V] . [amount of charcoal]|
