Abstract: The paper investigates the rate of a chemical reaction by sensing mechanism, use of a chemical sensor. The sensing element is a fiber. A chemical solution is taken. A portion of the fiber (uncladded region) is dipped in the solution for sensing the progress of the reaction. The rate of a chemical reaction can be calculated by measuring the speed at which products are formed. This can be estimated by the absorbance of lightwave as the reaction speeds up. From the curve of absorbance rate against time we can calculate the reaction rate by finding the slope.
Keywords: Sensor technology, Chemical concentration, multimode fiber, slope of the curve.
