MSE618 SPRING 2018 Reading Assignment #2 (Week 4): Chapter 2 1. Consider the general reation Aa+bB =Cc + dD Give the rate expression in terms of [A],[B].[C],and[D] a. The rate expression can be described by the equation below, where X can be either A, B, C or D, x can be either a, b, c, or d, and k is the rate constant. The constants m, n, o, and p describe orders of reaction for each species in the reaction. (???𝑎?𝑖?? 2.3) 1 ? ?[𝑋] ?? = ?[?] ? [?] ? [?] ? [?] ? 2. Describe method of initial slopes a. The method of initial slopes is used to determine the order of the reaction and or the individual species of the reaction (m, n, o, and p above). This method examines the concentration effect of one reactant while keeping the other reactants constant. One would first start by establishing a base rate of reaction and then increase the concentration of one reactant to then observe any changes in rate of production of the product(s). 3. Write the integrated rate law and the differential rate law for a first-order reaction: A product a.

### 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.
