1 What do you need for this week’s workshops on Wednesday and Thursday? See the course schedule! The activity book : Solving Real Problems with Chemistry Activity: #13 The Time of Death Graph paper or laptop with Excel to make graphs Need to determine the slope of a line 2 Ch 13. Rates of Chemical Reactions Chemical kinetics is the study of the rates of chemical reactions. Provides information that is helpful in determining the mechanism of a reaction. The rate is measured by monitoring the concentration of reactants or products as a function of time. The rate at any specific time is given by how fast the concentration of reactants or products change. Reaction rates decrease as reactants are consumed.

3 Today’s To Do Given concentrations as a function of time, calculate the average rate of the reaction. Given the rate law for a reaction, predict how the reaction rate changes as concentrations of the reactants change. Determine the rate law of a reaction, given initial reaction rates for different initial concentrations. Determine the rate constant of a reaction from reaction rate data. 4 Chemical Reactions are Dynamic Reactants Products Products Reactants Reactants Products Equilibrium is reached when the rate of the forward reaction = rate of the reverse reaction. Same equilibrium concentrations result whether one starts with reactants or products.
