(b) Explain why a single drop of sulfuric acid dramatically increases the reaction rate.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Chapter 4 Lecture Notes  3 major classes of chemical reactions o General properties of aqueous solutions o Acid-base reactions o Redox reactions o Concentration solutions  Electrolytes o Strong: dissociates in water o Weak: don't completely dissociate in water  Chemical reactions o AX + BY --> AY + BX o Anions exchange places between cations  Ionic equation o List all dissociated ions  Net ionic equations o Cancel all ions that are the same on each side o The crossed out ions are the spectator ions  Water solubility o Sulfides, fluorides, carbonates, and oxides are insoluble  Acid-base theories o Bronsted-lowry
