Chem 222 notes Week 3 Chapter 13: Kinematics Kinetics deal with how fast a reaction takes place. Thermodynamics deal with whether or not a reaction will occur. Kinetics and thermodynamics are not related to each other. The rate of reaction is the change in molarity with respect to time, dM/dt. For a reaction A 2B, the rate expression for the rate of reaction would be: Rate= -Δ[A]/Δt Rate= Δ[B]/2Δt Reactants have a negative sign in front of them, and the expression is divided by any coefficient that may be in front of a reactant or product. Four things affect rate: 1. Reactant concentration 2. Presence of a catalyst 3. Temperature 4. Surface area A rate law describes the rate of reaction in terms of the concentration of the reactants. RATE LAW IS DETERMINED EXPERIMENTALLY. A sample rate law for an equation: 2A + 3B 5C Rate=k[A] [B] y Notice that C, a product, is not a part of this rate law. Notice that the balancing coefficients in front of A and B do not necessarily correspond to X and Y. X and Y are usually small integer values, such as 0, 1, or 2. The order of a reaction is the sum of the exponents. Say X is 2 and Y is 1, the reaction above would be a third-order reaction. First-order Reactions: For a first order equation A B + C, the rate expression is: Rate= -Δ[A]/Δt. The rate law is: rate=k[A]. A is raised to the first power because the sum of all exponents must equal 1 since this a first-order reaction, and there is only one exponent so it must be 1. The equation for determining the concentration after a set amount of time for a first-order reaction is: Ln[A] tLn[A] -0t The expression for the half-life is: t1/2n(2)/k. This half life does not change with respect to time. Second-order Reactions: For a second order equation A B + C, the rate expression is: Rate= -Δ[A]/Δt. The rate law is: rate=k[A] . A is raised to the second power because the sum of all exponents must equal 2 since this a second-order reaction, and there is only one exponent so it must be 2. The equation for determining the concentration after a set amount of time for a second-order reaction is: 1/[A] t1/[A] +0t The expression for the half-life is: t =1/2[A] . Th0s half-life increases with respect to time. Zero-order Reactions: For a zero order equation A B + C, the rate expression is: Rate= -Δ[A]/Δt. The rate law is: rate=k. A is raised to the zero power because the sum of all exponents must equal 0 since this a zero-order reaction. Anything raised to the 0 power is 1; therefore, it disappears out of the equation. The equation for determining the concentration after a set amount of time for a zero-order reaction is: [A]t=[A] 0kt The expression for the half-life is: t =1/2 /2k.0This half-life decreases with respect to time. Calculating the Rate Constant, k: K=Zfp, where Z=collision frequency F=fraction of collisions with minimum energy P= orientation factor Ln(k)=-E /aT + Ln(A), where A is the frequency factor and R=8.314J/(mol*K)

## Why people love StudySoup

#### "Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

#### "I signed up to be an Elite Notetaker with 2 of my sorority sisters this semester. We just posted our notes weekly and were each making over $600 per month. I LOVE StudySoup!"

#### "Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

#### "It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
