Hello, I would like to model a chemical decomposition reaction with adsorption of one of the reagents. I determined an equation I would like to fit to my data (conversion of the reagent vs temperature), here is the formula of the equation: 1-Exp[-0.5 (A1 Exp[-E1/(8.31 x)] (1-(Sqrt[((A1 Exp[-E1/(8.31 x)])/(A2 Exp[-E2/(8.31 x)]+A3 Exp[-E3/(8.31 x)])) 0.05])/(1+Sqrt[((A1 Exp[-E1/ (8.31 x)])/(A2 Exp[-E2/(8.31 x)]+A3 Exp[-E3/(8.31 x)])) 0.05]))+A3 Exp[-E3/(8.31 x)] ((Sqrt[((A1 Exp[-E1/(8.31 x)])/(A2 Exp[-E2/(8.31 x)] +A3 Exp[-E3/(8.31 x)])) 0.05])/(1+Sqrt[((A1 Exp[-E1/(8.31 x)])/(A2 Exp[-E2/(8.31 x)]+A3 Exp[-E3/(8.31 x)])) 0.05])))], {x},{A1, A2, A3,E1, E2, E3} here it is shown more clearly: http://www.chemia.uj.edu.pl/%7Estelmach/equationfull.GIF I am quite confident that the expression is OK, however Mathematica returns errors about overflow may it be that the equation is too complicated? or rather it can't return good results due to wrong construction? should anyone want to give it a try, here you can find a csv file with data: http://www.chemia.uj.edu.pl/~stelmach/fitfile.csv Regards to all
