Hello CFX users, I have a multi-step reaction which looks like the following

A<=>B+C , k1=forward rate;k-1=backward rate
B->D+3C, k2=forward reaction rate (irreversible)

B is an intermediate and d[B]/dt=0; so -d[A]/dt= k1[A]/(1+k-1/k2[C]) and we have similar equations for C and D

I have information only about k1 and (k-1/k2) and not k-1 and k2 individually. In theory this is enough to predict the reaction rates of A,C and D.
How do I model this in CFX?

Thanks in advance,
