Solving simple stoichiometric equations

A linear system of equations

TheGaußscheme

Multiplicativeelements.

A non-linear system

Matrix algebra dealsessentiallywithlinearlinear systems.

Solving a linear system

Thedivisionthrough a vectoror a matrixis not defined!

2 equations and fourunknowns

Det A: determinant of A

The determinant of linear dependent matricesis zero.

Suchmatricesarecalledsingular.

Theinverse of a diagonal matrix

Determinant

Theinverse of a squarematrixonlyexistsifits determinant differsfrom zero.

Singularmatrices do not have an inverse

(A•B)-1 = B-1 •A-1 ≠ A-1 •B-1

Theinversecan be unequivocallycalculated by the Gauss-Jordan algorithm

X: Not singular

TheaugmentedmatrixXaugis not singular and hasthe same rank as X.

Therank of a matrixis minimum number of rows/columns of thelargestnon-singularsubmatrix

A matrixislinear independent ifnone of theroworcolumnvectorscan be expressed by a linearcombinations of theremainingvectors

A linearcombination of vectors

A matrix of n-vectors (roworcolumns) iscalledlinear dependent ifitispossible to express one of thevectors by a linearcombination of theother n-1 vectors.

r2=2r1

r3=2r1+r2

Thematricesarelinear dependent

If a vectorV of a matrixislinear dependent on theothervecors, Vdoes not containadditionalinformation. Itiscompletelydefined by theothervectors. ThevectorVisredundant.

Linearindependence

How to detectlineardependency

Any solution of k3=0 and k1=-2k2satisfiestheaboveequations. Thematrixislinear dependent.

If a matrixAislinearly independent, thenanysubmatrix of Aisalsolinearly independent

Rank(A) = rank(A:B) = n

Infinitenumber of solutions

Consistent

Rank(A) = rank(A:B) < n

No solution

Inconsistent

Rank(A) < rank(A:B)

Infinitenumber of solutions

Consistent

Rank(A) = rank(A:B) < n

Inconsistent

Rank(A) < rank(A:B)

No solution

Consistent

Rank(A) = rank(A:B) = n

Infinitenumber of solutions

We haveonlyfourequations but five unknowns.

The system isunderdetermined.

Themissingvalueisfound by dividingthevectorthroughitssmallestvalues to findthesmallestsolution for natural numbers.

Includinginformation on thevalences of elements

Equality of atomsinvolved

We have 16 unknows but withoutexperminetnalinformationonly 11 equations.

Such a system isunderdefined.

A system with n unknownsneedsatleast n independent and non-contradictoryequationsfor a uniquesolution.

If ni and aiareunknowns we have a non-linearsituation.

We eitherdetermine ni oraiormixedvariablessuchthat no multiplicationsoccur.

Thematrixissingularbecause a1, a7, and a10 do not containnewinformation

Matrix algebra helps to determinewhatinformationisneeded for an unequivocalinformation.

Fromtheknowledge of thesalts we get n1 to n5

We havesixvariables and sixequationsthatare not contradictory and containdifferentinformation.

Thematrixistherefore not singular.
