sincerely yours. ali mottalea. M.SC. of MEC. engineering. sharif university tehran.

dear ali,

yes, you have to change the constants to the appropriate ones according to the reactants and kinetics being considered.

i suppose it would be the best if you try to simulate using the shortest/simplified mechanism first before using complex one.

best wishes
