CH 302 Spring 200 8 Worksheet 13 [A] [B] [C] rate 0.10 M 0.10 M 0.10 M 1.4 x 10 -4 M/s 0.20 M 0.10 M 0.10 M 2.8 x 10 -4 M/s 0.37 M 0.25 M 0.10 M 8.09 x 10 -3 M/s 0.37 M 0.25 M 0.05 M 3.24 x 10 -2 M/s For the data given above, find the order of the reaction with respect to the indicated species. 1. A Answer: When you double the amount of A, the reaction rate doubles, so the reaction is first-order in A . 2. B Answer: We know the reaction is first-order in A. So multiplying A by 3.7 (from the first one) would yield a rate of 3.7(1.4 x 10 -4 M/s) = 5.2 x 10 -4 if B and C were unchanged. Thus, multiplying B by 2.5 yielded a net change of (8.09/0.52) = 15.6 = 2.5 3 . So the reaction is third-order in B . 3. C Answer: Halving C quadruples the reaction order. So the reaction is of order -2 in C . 4. Assume the reaction does not depend on any other species besides A, B, and C. Write the expression for the rate of the reaction in terms of the rate constant k. Answer: rate = k[A][B] 3 /[C] 2 5. Calculate the rate constant k. k = (rate)[C]/[A][B] 3 = (1.4 x 10 -4 M/s)(0.1 M) 2 /((0.1 M)(0.1 M) 3 ) = 0.014 M -1 s -1 6. If A = 10 8 M -1 s -1 and T = 298 K, what is E a for this reaction?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
