VISIBLE SPECTROSCOPY PURDUE UNIVERSITY INSTRUMENT VAN PROJECT KINETIC STUDY OF THE REACTION OF KI WITH FeCl 3 (Revised: 5-20-96) INTRODUCTION Concentration of reactants is one factor which influences the rate of a chemical reaction. The following reaction will be investigated: 2 I - (aq) + 2 Fe 3+ (aq) ───────── > I 2 (aq) + 2 Fe 2+ (aq) The concentration of I - and Fe 3+ will be systematically varied, and the effect of these changes in solution absorbancies will be determined using a visible spectrophotometer. The rate expression for the reaction will then be calculated: Rate = k[I - ] x [Fe 3+ ] y , x,y = order with respect to reactants PURPOSE 1. To become familiar with the use of the visible spectrophotometer. 2. To determine the order of the reaction with respect to each reactant. 3. To write an overall rate expression for the reaction. SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS Goggles must be worn in the lab. PRE-LAB Consider the hypothetical reaction: A + B ───────── > product(s) The rate expression is: Rate = k[A] x [B] y Determine the values for x and y , from the following data: [A] [B] Rate 0.10 0.10 2.0 0.10 0.20 4.0 0.20 0.10 8.0

### 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.
