Abstract

The interactions employed in the “linear” reaction A(g)+BC(g) -> AB(g) + C(g) in a “one dimensional world” can be used to illustrate the “reaction coördinate”, using Maple, in a manner which allows students to inspect potential energy surfaces, make contour maps of those surfaces, and conceptually construct the “reaction coördinate” by tracing the local minimum path on the surface created.“one dimensional world” can be used to illustrate the “reaction coördinate”, using Maple, in a manner which allows students to inspect potential energy surfaces, make contour maps of those surfaces, and conceptually construct the “reaction coördinate” by tracing the local minimum path on the surface created.
