Detailed Description

The dimensions of the variables in a chemical equilibrium problem.

In a chemical equilibrium problem, we are interested in computing the values of the following variables:

  • \(n\), the vector with the amounts of the chemical species;
  • \(p\), the vector with the p control variables;
  • \(q\), the vector with the q control variables;

The p control variables are those variables introduced to enforce constraints of equation type. These are temperature and/or pressure, in case they are unknown, as well as the amounts of explicit titrants (the substances that we permit in/out of the system).

The q control variables are those variables introduced to enforce constraints of chemical potential type. These are implicit titrants (also substances allowed in/out of the system) whose amounts need to be found so that the chemical potential constraints are satisfied.
