2017-01-12 1 Chemical Kinetics Part I CHEM1001 Chemical Dynamics Learning Objectives Describe how the rate of reaction is related to rate of concentration changes of reactants/productsUse methods of initial rates to determine reaction ordersUse the rate law and rate data to calculate rate constantsDerive integrated rate laws and determine if given kinetic data describes zero, first or second order reactionsUnderstand and calculate half-lives for given reactionsUse the Arrhenius equation in calculations involving rate constants, temperatures and activation energiesDescribe reaction mechanisms, distinguish between elementary processes and overall net reactionsDescribe the role of a catalyst and explain the difference between homo- and heterogeneous catalysts2What is chemical kinetics?Chemical kinetics give us information on how ______ a reaction proceedsChemical reaction rates are usually measured in terms of changes in ______________ divided by changes in _________Reaction rates are either averageor instantaneous, what’s the difference? 3
