The article “The Equilibrium Partitioning of Titanium Between Ti3+ and Ti4+ Valency States in CaO-SiO2-TiOx Slags” (G. Tranell, O. Ostrovski, and S. Jahanshahi, Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B, 2002:61–66) discusses the relationship between the redox ratio Ti3+/Ti4+ and oxygen partial pressure pO2 in CaO-SiO2-TiOx melts. Several independent measurements of the redox ratio were made at each of five different partial pressures: 10-7, 10-8, 10-9, 10-10, and 10-12 atmospheres. The results for the runs at 14 mass percent TiOx are presented in the following table.
a. Denoting the redox ratio by y and the partial pressure by x, theory states that y should be proportional to x𝛽 for some β. Express this theoretical relationship as a linear model.
b. Compute the least-squares line for this linear model. Plot the residuals versus the fitted values. Does the linear model hold?
c. Further theoretical considerations suggest that under the conditions of this experiment, y should be proportional to x-1/4. Are the data in the preceding table consistent with this theory? Explain.
