Please see the attached problem.

Rate is being defined as d[P]/dt, and d[P]/dt = k~~[/noparse]k~~~~[/noparse]).~~

The other equation I've used is [E]

But I can't seem to eliminate all of the extra variables doing that alone. What should I do?

Rate is being defined as d[P]/dt, and d[P]/dt = k

_{3}[ES]. So the main challenge is expressing [ES]. I applied the steady-state approximation to find [ES] = [E][noparse]_{1}+k

_{-2}[ES

_{2}] / (k

_{3}+k

_{-1}+k

_{2}[noparse]

The other equation I've used is [E]

_{0}=[E]+[ES]+[ES

_{2}], the E mass balance.

But I can't seem to eliminate all of the extra variables doing that alone. What should I do?
