Problem 17.1.12

What is meant by a rate law for a chemical reaction? Explain the conditions under which a rate law can be written from a chemical equation. When can a rate law not be written from a single step?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Properties Affected by Intermolecular Forces  Boiling point: Stronger intermolecular forces, higher boiling point  Melting point: Stronger intermolecular forces, higher melting point  Viscosity o Resistance of liquid to flow o Is related to the ease with which molecules can move past each other o Molasses has a high viscosity o Stronger forces=higher viscosity  Surface tension o Results from the net inward force experienced by the molecules on the surface of a liquid o On any surface molecule, there is no upward force to cancel the downward force, which means each surface molecule “feels” a net downward pull o This creates almost a film-like effect on
