above examples But BL does not require H20 to be the source of H However what about HF NH3 NH4 Fquot Note All appear above T as acids or bases Proton Proton acceptor here but does donor not release OH39 in this reaction gt BL AcidBase reaction but not Arrhenius Note Related reactantproduct species NH3 NH4 Bases F HF ACIds NH3 and NH4 are referred to as a coniuqate acidbase pair Same for F39HF

or neutral quotspectatorquot Anions acidic basic or neutral quotspectatorquot Let39s take cations first Which are neutral 9 LL Na K 9212 Sr2 Ba2 also Rb and Cs Do these ring any bells Recall that their hydroxides are strong bases Connection Only neutral cations would have strongly basic hydroxides Hydroxides of other cations have reduced basicities due to the cations39 acidities All other

ring any bells Recall that their conjugate acids are all strong Connection Only neutral anions would not reduce the acidities of their conjugate acids the H does not bond as strongly to them as to H20 Note 8042quot not neutral since HSO439 is not a strong acid Which are acidic HSO439 HSOg39 H2PO439 Not many since one is removing H from a 2 charge AH other common anions are basic Let39s confirm this

gt Ka HPO4239 is a basic ion as expected try 1 M pH calculation Now that we can assess acidbase properties of individual ions lets look at their combinations ie salts Some combinations are obvious eg Example neutralneutral gt neutral NaCl neutral basic gt basic NaCN neutral acidic gt acidic NaHSO4 acidic neutral gt acidic AlClg NH4CI acidic acidic gt acidic NH4H2PO4 However when one is acidic and the other basic one must compare Ka and Kb 80 Ka Kb NH4CN 5610391O 1710395 basic NH4OAC 5610391O 5610 1O neutral coincidence AiOAc3 1210395 5610391O acidic for AlH20is3 AI3ltaqgt Calculating actual pH values for mixed acidbase salts is complicated we will limit ourselves to simply judging whether the combinations are acidic basic or neutral Chapter 15 20 VI ACIDBASE LEVELING Now that we know

EQUILIBRIUM In many chemical reactions one side or the other is highly favored and one may see no evidence of the species on the disfavored side eg AH AH Ea Exothermic Endothermic product favoredlt

N02 gt Each proceeds until a balance is reached So if one puts 1 g of N02 in a1 L flask or 1 g of N204 in a1 L flask eventually both flasks contain the same mass of N02 and the same mass of N204 if T is constant When this happens one says that a dynamic reversible equilibrium has been established Chapter 14 1 In such a situation 1 The position of equilibrium is independent of the direction of approach Useful check in practice 2 Both the fonNard and reverse reactions continue to occur ie dynamic vs static but we see no change 3 The rates of these reactions may be slow or fast could take 10

change from other conditions Altered Equilibria There are a number of ways in which a system may be perturbed from an equilibrium state 1 Adding or removing a reactant or product in the Q expression 2 Compressing or expanding the system P or V change Not including P of nonparticipants 3 Changing the temperature Only this changes K To determine what would happen after such a perturbation one can consider le Chatelier39s Principle When the conditions of a system are altered the system responds in such a way as to oppose the change Let39s look at these three possible perturbations Chapter 14 11 First Adding or Removing a Reactant or Product Consider aA bB cC dD PcquotF Dd K Q or PAaPBb At equilibrium K Q If we now add B too much reactant Q lt K and we are out of equilibrium The system can be restored to equilibrium by then shifting reactants including B to products Note by increasing reactant concentrations reactants collide m with each other so the rate of product formation increases Note Agreement with Le Chatelier39s Principle We added B and the system responded by reducing B Second Pressure or V Effects Very important reaction N2g 3 H2g 2 NH3g at 25 C K 6105 Nature can do

We now see that Q lt K so some reactants must be converted to products Or according to E Chatelier39s Principle since the pressure of the system was increased the system responds to reduce the pressure which is accomplished by converting 4 reactant molecules to 2 product molecules One can also remove products to drive reaction Finally Temperature Effects Note In these cases K changes unlike first two cases Temperature effects can also be treated using Le Chatelier39s Principle One simply regards heat as a product of an exothermic reaction or a reactant of an endothermic one Note N2g 3

origin of this temperature dependence We can start by examining some implicit assumptions about chemical reactions excluding unimolecular 1 Molecules must collide with each other for reaction to occur 2 Molecules must collide with the proper orientation 3 Collisions must provide enough energy for reaction to occur to overcome an energy barrier Why First requirement is rather obvious Second requirement like burning gasoline even a favorable process may need help to get started to achieve the energy of activation Third requirement Consider Chapter13 14 NOO3 gtN02Oz Possible approaches more than one could work 0 O O O O O N O O O O N IO N O O O N O 0 good m worse worst However even for correct approaches there can be a substantial barrier why We have already seen that there can be attractive intermolecular interactions between molecules dipoledipole dispersion forces etc However these occur at rather long distances compared to bond lengths Example 34A 1 A 103 cm 34 A separation van der Waals distance ideal for C C attractive intermolecular interaction But for a chemical bond 154 A 80 in this case to get a normal bond to form one must push the nonbonded atoms 2 A closer than optimal for a nonbonded interaction In the process one could generate significant Chapter13 15 repulsions between the electron clouds of the two atoms ie an energy barrier is encountered We can quantify such phenomena by use of Energy Profiles eg Typical diagram Less common 132 kJmole 4 kJmole Q 03 NO N02 200 CO 226 kJmole kJmole NO co2 02 N02 Reverse reaction unfavorable Reverse reaction

12 gt 2 HI seem to behave as expected kinetically so that in this case rate kH212 suggesting a onestep process In this case the overall reaction might appear to be a single elementam step In some other reactions things are not so simple For example H2 Brz 2 HBr M No absolute HBr rate 39 1 k39HBrBr2 or Br2 order Explainable via Brz ZBr elementary Br H2 HBr H steps HBr2 gt HBrBr Sometimes simple appearing rate laws can be deceptive Chapter13 22 however Important to realize that while the overall reaction may not be directly reflected by the rate equation the rates of the individual elementary steps are directly and predictably related to the species contained in each Example Elementary Step Rate Reaction Order 1 A gt B kA unimolecular 2 28 gt C k B2 bimolecular 3 A B c D k ABC termolecularuncommon Overall 4 A gt D 31 2 3 Could give inverse dependence since this could prevent step 3 Now let s take a look at a real example Mno439 8 H 5 Fe2 Mn2 5 Fe3 4 H20 gt Very rapid yet obviously could not involve a simultaneous collision of 14 ions In this and many other cases a complex series of elementary steps is actually involved In real life the determination of mechanisms can be difficult and controversial Much easier to disprove than to prove a mechanism In ideal cases one might be able to assign a mechanism rather unambiguously Not always going to be so easy Chapter13 23 Example 0 2NO Br2 gt 2NOBr N Br rate kNO2Br2 Like Cl analogue p 135 Does this demonstrate a termolecular process so that the overall reaction and the single elementary step are equivalent No The actual rates are too high to be consistent with a termolecular process So the rate equation here is deceptive Can be explained by NO Br2 gt NOBr2 2 NO gt NO2 NOBr2 NO gt 2 NOBr NO2 Br2 gt 2 NOBr ALther example 2NO2 F2 gt 2NO2F rate kNO2F2 gt Seems to implicate a slow ratedetermining step in which NO2 and F2 form some sort of intermediate eg elementary NO2 F2 gt NO2F F slow some bond breakage steps NO2 F gt NO2F fast no bond breakage 2 N02 F2 gt 2 NO2F overall reaction Now let s look at NO2 CO gt NO CO2 Chapter13 24
