#### Polymerization Reactors: Interactive Simulation

This simulation was prepared using Mathematica. Download the free Wolfram player, and then download the simulation CDF file (link given below or click on figure to download).

**Try to answer these questions before determining the answer with the simulation**. We suggest that you write down the reasons for your answers.

- Which chain length is longer, the number average or the weight average?
- In a free radical polymerization, when the termination rate constant increases. what happens to the average chain length?
