Dissociation fraction (mass basis) of O
« on: March 30, 2020, 09:23:27 PM »
Hi all,

I have a question related to the mass fraction. If I have a mixture of N2, O2 and O, is the dissocation fraction (mass basis) α = (O)/(O + O2 + N2) or does it exclude [N2]?

Thanks.  :)

The dissociation fraction of O2 is 0.5[O ]/(0.5[O ] + [O2]). Do you see why?

Edit: include a space in [O ] or it gives odd formatting!
