Unformatted text preview: 1. How does the initial reactant concentration affect: the initial reaction rate? the overall reaction order? the rate constant? 2. How does the temperature affect: the initial reaction rate? the overall reaction order? the rate constant? 3. How can the instantaneous rate of reaction be determined from the graphs? 4. How can the overall reaction order be determined from the graphs? 5. How can the rate constant be determined from the graphs? 6. Under what conditions does the rate constant remain constant? We are looking at the graphed data collected from the the solvolysis of chloromethane, CH 3 Cl; and the decomposition of ozone, O 3 . We want to know what conditions affect the rate of a chemical reaction. We see that an increase in the initial reactant concentration increases the initial rate of reaction, but the overall reaction order is not affected by a change in reactant concentration. The rate constant is only a function of temperature, and thus is independent of concentration....
