Let’s say that at the house of a certain math professor, he and his wife
hand out 250 pieces of candy in the first 5.00 minutes of a
Halloween
night.
Of course, the kids are terribly frightened because of his
ghoulish disguise but what they do not realize is that he is not wearing
a costume…
Anyhow, they have all together 2,500 pieces of candy.
Assuming that the candy will be dispensed following second order
kinetics, how long will it take before they have only the 1,000 pieces
he wants to keep for himself?
(14 pts)
Well, we are told that the disappearance of the candy follows second order kinetics.
This means that…

We need to determine the rate constant (k) first.
For that, we use the information that he
dispenses 250 pieces of candy in 5.00 minutes.
Therefore, he has 2,250 pieces of candy left
after 5 minutes.

Of
course, some of the gases escaped.
Is the mixture still equimolar or is
there one gas in excess?
If so, which is the excess gas?
