a) the % conversion of monomer to polymer
b) the average rate of polymerisation, Rp (in units of mol 𝑑𝑚−³ 𝑠−¹) over the period which the polymerisation was carried out.
Rp = -----------
MMA density = 940 𝑘𝑔/𝑚𝑜𝑙3
Toluene density = 867 𝑘𝑔/𝑚3
Toluene /g 10
AIBN / g 0.2
Sampling time (mins) 60
Mass of Polymer 1.9226
Polymerisation took place at 60°C
It should be assumed that there is no change of volume when the monomer and toluene are mixed.
