Experiment 15 Chemical Kinetics
Image of page 1
Purpose The purpose of this experiment is to determine the rate of a chemical reaction (potassium permanganate, KMnO 4 , + oxalic acid, H 2 C 2 O 4 ) as the concentrations are varied and to determine the rate law for the reaction.

Rate Law Rate law---a relationship between concentrations and rate. For a reaction aA + bB products the rate law often takes the form Rate = k[A] x [B] y
Image of page 6
Rate = k[A] x [B] y [A],[B]: molarities of A and B in solution x, y: orders with respect to A and B, respectively. (These orders might not correspond to coefficients from the balanced equation!) k: rate constant

What We’re Running 2 MnO 4 - + 5 H 2 C 2 O 4 + 6 H + 2 Mn 2+ + 10 CO 2 + 8 H 2 O We assume a rate law Rate = k [MnO 4 - ] m [H 2 C 2 O 4 ] n The rate law and rate constant are not affected by concentration.

Strategy One pair of experiments (assignments 1 and 2): [MnO 4 - ] is constant and [H 2 C 2 O 4 ] doubles.

    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.
