b) Explain why the atmospheric rate of formation of S(VI) in the aqueous phase is given by (Please see attachment for atmospheric rate of formation)
where k is the liquid-phase rate constant for the oxidation of S(IV) to S(VI) by X in air with a liquid water content of L.
Please give detailed explanation of why you use a certain formula.
The Rate Equation for Atmospheric Oxidation of S(IV) to S(VI) is explained in detail. Liquid phase gas ratios in a water droplet are also discussed.
