EXPT. #13 Pre Lab 1. rate – speed at which a reaction occurs Rate law – an equation that relates the rate of a reaction to the concentrations of reactants raised to various powers. Rate constant – a proportionality constant in the relationship between rate and concentrations Order of reaction – the order in which the reaction occurs Activation energy – energy needed to start the reaction process Catalysis – the increase in rate of a reaction as the result of the addition of a catalyst 2. a) The process is to add all of the reactants and then time it until the blue color appears, this

This is to see if the addition of CuSO 4 or Fe(NO 3 ) 3 will act as a catalyst in the reaction already done in part B. 4. .40 M I-, .10 M S 2 O 8 , .0050 M S 2 O 8 . Rate for B2 is .0063 M/s. Rate for B7 is 6.76 x 10-5 M/s....
