Ilkovic equation   →   Ilkovičeva jednadžba

Ilkovic equation is a relation used in polarography relating the diffusion current (id) and the concentration of the depolarizer (c), which is the substance reduced or oxidized at the dropping mercury electrode. The Ilkovic equation has the form

id = k n D1/3m2/3t1/6c

Where k is a constant which includes Faraday constant, π and the density of mercury, and has been evaluated at 708 for max current and 607 for average current, D is the diffusion coefficient of the depolarizer in the medium (cm2/s), n is the number of electrons exchanged in the electrode reaction, m is the mass flow rate of Hg through the capillary (mg/sec), and t is the drop lifetime in seconds, and c is depolarizer concentration in mol/cm3.

The equation is named after the scientist who derived it, the Slovak chemist, Dionýz Ilkovič 1907-1980).


Boltzmann equation   →   Boltzmannova jednadžba

Boltzmann equation is a statistical definition of entropy, given by

S = k lnW

where S and k are the entropy and Boltzmann’s constant, respectively, and W is the probability of finding the system in a particular state.


Butler-Volmer equation   →   Butler-Volmerova jednadžba

Butler-Volmer equation is an activation controlled reaction, the one for which the rate of reaction is controlled solely by the rate of the electrochemical charge transfer process, which is in turn an activation-controlled process. This gives rise to kinetics that are described by the Butler-Volmer equation:

Butler-Volmer equation

where io is exchange current density, η is overpotential (= E - Eo), n is number of electrons, αA is anodic transfer coefficient, and αC is cathodic transfer coefficient


chemical equation   →   kemijska jednadžba

Chemical equation is a way of denoting a chemical reaction using the symbol for the participating particles (atoms, molecules, ions, etc.); for example,

aA + bB cC + dD

The single arrow is used for an irreversible reaction; double arrows are used for reversible reactions. When reactions involve different phases, it is usual to put the phase in brackets after the symbol.

s = solid
l = liquid
g = gas
aq = aqueous

The numbers a, b, c, and d, showing the relative numbers of molecules reacting, are called the stoichiometric coefficients. The convention is that stoichiometric coefficients are positive for reactants and negative for products. If the sum of the coefficients is zero, the equation is balanced.


chemical equation equalization   →   izjednačavanje kemijske jednadžbe

Chemical equation equalization is determining values of stechiometric coefficients of reactants and products in a chemical equation in a way that the number of atoms of each element is equal before and after the reaction.


chemical reaction equation   →   jednadžba kemijske reakcije

Chemical reactions are symbolically shown with chemical equations. On the left side of the equation we write formulas or substance symbols which enter the chemical reaction, reactants. On the right side formulas or substance symbols which emerge from the chemical reaction, products, are writen.

2H2 + O2 = 2H2O

Each chemical reaction leads to an equilibrium which is moved more or less to one side (left or right). Because of that, in reversible reactions instead of = sign two opposite arrows are put

2H2 + O2 2H2O

In order to write down certain chemical reaction equation all reactants and all products and their stechiometric proportions must be known. (See Chemical reaction balancing)


Clapeyron equation   →   Clapeyronova jednadžba

Clapeyron equation (also called the Clausius-Clapeyron equation) is a relation between pressure and temperature of two phases of a pure substance that are in equilibrium,

dp / dT
=
ΔS / ΔV

where ΔtrsS is the difference in entropy between the phases and ΔtrsV the corresponding difference in volume.


complete ionic equation   →   potpuna ionska jednadžba

Complete ionic equation is a balanced equation that describes a reaction occurring in a solution, in which all strong electrolytes are written as dissociated ions.


Einstein equation   →   Einsteinova jednadžba

Einstein equation is the mass-energy relationship introduced by Albert Einstein in 1905 in the form E = mc2, where E is a quantity of energy, m its mass, and c is the speed of light. It presents the concept that energy possesses mass.


equation of state   →   jednadžba stanja

Equation of state is an equation relating the pressure, volume, and temperature of a substance or system. Equation of state for ideal gas

pV = nRT

where p is pressure, V molar volume, T temperature, and R the molar gas constant (8.314 JK-1mol-1).
