Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points The first order rate constant for A products is 6 . 6 s 1 . If [A] = 1 . 3 M at t = 0, what is the value of [A] at t = 0 . 6 s? 1. . 00495641 M 2. 6 . 19551 10 6 M 3. 1 . 2391 10 5 M 4. . 495641 M 5. . 024782 M correct Explanation: [A] = 1 . 3 M t = 0 . 6 s k = 6 . 6 s 1 If the reaction is first order, the integrated rate equation is ln [A] [A] = a k t ln[ A ] ln[ A ] = a k t ln[ A ] = ln[ A ] a k t = ln(1 . 3 M) (1) ( 6 . 6 s 1 ) (0 . 6 s) = 3 . 69764 M [ A ] = 0 . 024782 M 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A reaction A products is observed toobey firstorder kinetics. Which of the following plots should give a straight line? 1. ln[A] vs k 2. [A] vs 1 t 3. [A] vs 1 k 4. [A] vs t 5. ln[A] vs t correct 6. [A] vs k 7. ln[A] vs 1 k 8. ln[A] vs 1 t Explanation: The first order integrated rate equation is ln [A] [A] = a k t ln[A] ln[A] = a k t ln[A] = a k t + ln[A] Since a , k , and ln[A] are constants, this equa tion is in the form y = mx + b , where y = ln [A] and x = t . A straight line is produced by y = mx + b . 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Consider the following data for the reaction A products. Initial Trial [A] Halflife (M) (s) 1 . 2 30 2 . 5 12 3 . 1 60 The reaction 1. is first order. 2. is second order. correct 3. No choice is correct. Moore, Robert Homework 12 Due: Apr 29 2007, midnight Inst: McCord 2 4. is zero order. 5. has an order that cannot be determined from the data given. Explanation: 004 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A first order elementary reaction A products has a rate constant of 3 . 16 10 8 sec 1 . At an instant in time, a concentration of 3 . 16 10 6 M of species A is created. How long does it take for the concentration to fall by a factor of 4? 1. 4 . 2 10 6 sec 2. 4 . 4 10 9 sec correct 3. 1 . 28 10 8 sec 4. 1 . 6 10 9 sec 5. 6 . 4 10 9 sec Explanation: a = 1 k = 3 . 16 10 8 s 1 [A] = 3 . 16 10 6 M [A] t = 1 4 [A] ln [A ] [A] = a k t Since the concentration of A is decreasing by a factor of 4, ln(4) = a k t ln(4) = (1) ( 3 . 16 10 8 s 1 ) t t = ln(4) 3 . 16 10 8 s 1 = 4 . 38 10 9 s 005 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A first order reaction, where A products , has a rate constant of 1 . 56 10 7 s 1 . At some time, a concentration of 1 . 06 10 6 M of species A is introduced into the reactor. How long does it take for the concentration of A to fall by a factor of 8?...
