Kinetics

JPL
Data Evaluation #17 - Chemical Kinetics and Photchemical Data for Use in Atmospheric Studies (PDF file).

IUPAC
Chemical Kinetics Database - PDF file of recommended rate constants for use in atmospheric chemistry

NIST Chemical Kinetics Database -
Searchable database of rate constants. Data has been tabulated, not evaluated.

Consecutive
Reactions worksheet and Consecutive
Reactions pdf file - PDF file showing variants of Figure on concentrations versus time
for consecutive elementary reactions for three ratios of k_{a}/k_{b} and with k_{a} fixed at 10^{3} s^{-1}. This is for
the reaction scheme with the elementary reactions:

A -> I with rate constant k_{A}

I -> Products with rate constant k_{B}

Steady
State Approximation for H_{2} + Br_{2} Reaction - PDF file which justifies
the very strange rate law for the H_{2} + Br_{2} reaction.

Equations for the Radial wavefunction of a one-electron atom - Note that it is more general to use the value of *a* (which depends on the reduced mass) rather than *a*_{0} (the Bohr radius, which approximates the reduced mass as the electron mass).
