Could you please elaborate why the presence of air only slightly affected the dissolution rate of silicates? What would be the impact of surface area roughness of minerals on the net dissolution rate, have you considered sensitibbity analysis to evaluate these effects?
Thank you for the question. In the calculation shown in the slide, we used a surface roughness of 1. However, even if the surface roughness of quartz is increased to 50, the net dissolution rate (average value in the film) is still 85% of the rate constant (15% reduction in dissolution rate). Therefore, the result is not so sensitive to surface roughness at least for quartz.
