\ Experiment 14 Post Lab Calculations 1. Hand in the three plots (zero, first and second order) and the Excel worksheet of your data and results. See attached 2. Is the reaction zero, first or second order with respect to dichromate? This reaction is first order with respect to dichromate. As indicated by the graphs displaying the relationship between time and absorption, the graph of the first order dependence is the most linear with the highest R-squared value. 3. What is the value of the rate constant? What are the units? ln(A t ) = ln(A 0 ) – kt ln(A 200 ) = ln(A 0 ) - 200k 1.052 = -.192 – 200k 1.244 = -200k k = .0062 4. Thermal decomposition of nitrogen dioxide to nitric oxide and oxygen occurs according to the following reaction:2 NO2 → 2NO + O2 The rate law is: -d[NO2]/dt = k [NO2] x Use Excel to determine the order and rate constant of the reaction given the following data: Plotting the relationship of Concentration and Time of the NO2 reaction in Excel, we can see that the reaction is of 1 st Order dependence, for the R-squared value for the first order

    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.
