Plotting Chemical Kinetics–steady state
In this video one of the many uses of plotting in the ebooks is given. The example is first order consecutive reactions where the rate equations for the the concentration changes are plotted. By varying the rate constants so that the first is ten times smaller than the second, the steady state approximation is explained.
