Unformatted text preview: Emily Bissel February 11, 2007 MS# 1116 Tuesday PM Lab Partners: Becca Angell and Megan Anders Chemical Kinetics Introduction: Chemical reactions can occur at different rates depending on the amount and concentration of the reactants involved. The relationship between the concentration and the rate of a reaction can be seen in the equation for the rate law: Rate = k[A] m [B] n where k is the rate constant, is the concentration, and m&n are the order of the reaction with respect to A or B. When m or n is 1, the result is a first order reaction where doubling the concentration of the reaction doubles the rate of the reaction. When m or n is 2, the reaction is known as being 2 nd order, and doubling the concentration of the reactant results in quadrupling the rate of the reaction. Finally a zero-order reaction is one where m or n equals one and the rate of the reaction is unchanged by the...
