For Polymerization Of Styrene In Tetrahydrofuran At 25c Using Sodium Naphthalide

For polymerization of styrene in tetrahydrofuran at 25C using sodium naphthalide as initiator, the rate constant for propagation is 550 dm3mol-1s-1. If the initial mass concentration of styrene is 156 g dm-3 and that of sodium naphthalide is3.02 x 10-2 g dm-3, calculate the initial rate of polymeriztion and, for complete conversion of the styrene, the number-average molar mass of the polystyrene formed.Comment upon the expected value of the polydispersity index ( Mw/Mn )
