Abstract:

The kinetic differential equations of reaction systems were introduced. By using the fourth-order Runge-Kunta numerical integration method and Visual Basic 6, a general kinetic simulation software was obtained. The relations between the concentrations of every component with time at a fixed temperature were directly calculated. The teaching practices on physical chemistry and other courses shown that this software could directly display the relationships between the concentrations of every component of the reaction system and the influencing factors such as time and temperature, which would be helpful for students to grasp the laws of reaction kinetics and the knowledge points of the courses.

Key words: Reaction system, Kinetics, Simulation software, Physical chemistry course, Teaching practice
