Chemistry 112 – Day 6 (09/16/2019)Chapter 12 – KineticsoThe study of kinetics explores the rate or a reactionoHow fast does it go?In contrast to equilibrium which answers how far does it gooBy looking at how fast a reaction goes and how its rate changes with certainvariables, we can propose rate mechanisms.Reaction RateoChange in relation to timeoFor chemistry we usually use the change in conc. Of something over a certaintime period.oRates by convention are always expressed as a positive value.o4 general factors that we can control to manipulate the rate of a chemicalreaction.Influencing the RateoConcentrationoPhysical StateoTemperatureoCatalystsExpressing the RateoReactant concentrations decrease while product concentrations increaseFor ABoRate of reaction = -Changeconcentration of AChangeTime= -conc A2Conc A1t2t1Δ(conc A)ΔtoHow would you express this in terms of the product?
