Version 128 – Exam 4 – Holcombe – (52460) 1 This print-out should have 28 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Consider the data below: [CH 4 ] [O 2 ] initial rate M M M · s 1 Exp 1 0 . 5 1 . 3 2 . 5 × 10 3 Exp 2 0 . 5 2 . 6 1 . 0 × 10 2 Exp 3 1 . 0 1 . 3 5 . 0 × 10 3 Which of the following is a correct rate law for the reaction? 1. k [CH 4 ] 1 [O 2 ] 2. k [CH 4 ][O 2 ] 2 correct 3. k [CH 4 ][O 2 ] 4. k [CH 4 ] 1 [O 2 ] 2 5. k [CH 4 ] Explanation: rate 1 rate 2 = [O 2 ] 1 [O 2 ] 2 2 . 5 × 10 3 1 . 0 × 10 2 = parenleftbigg 1 . 3 2 . 6 parenrightbigg x x = 2 rate 3 rate 1 = [CH 4 ] 3 [CH 4 ] 1 5 . 0 × 10 3 2 . 5 × 10 3 = parenleftbigg 1 . 0 0 . 5 parenrightbigg y y = 1 002 10.0 points Magnesium metal is placed in contact with an underground steel storage tank to inhibit the corrosion of the tank because 1. magnesium has a lower oxidation poten- tial than iron. 2. magnesium is cheaper than gold. 3. magnesium has a higher reduction poten- tial than iron. 4. magnesium metal is a better reducing agent than iron. correct 5. magnesium functions as the cathode in the electrochemical cell instead of the iron. Explanation: 003 10.0 points Consider the reaction mechanism below: Step Reaction 1 Cl 2 + Pt -→ 2 Cl + Pt 2 Cl + CO + Pt -→ ClCO + Pt 3 Cl + ClCO -→ Cl 2 CO overall Cl 2 + CO -→ Cl 2 CO Which species is/are intermediates? 1. Pt, Cl 2. Pt, ClCO 3. ClCO 4. Cl, ClCO correct 5. Cl 6. Pt Explanation: Both Cl and ClO are produced in early steps and stiochiometrically consumed in sub- sequent steps and neither appear in the overall reaction. 004 10.0 points Consider the reaction 2 NOCl(g) 2 NO(g) + Cl 2 (g) with rate constant 0.0480 M 1 · s 1 when con- ducted at 200 C. The initial concentration of NOCl was 0.521 M. What is the concentration of NOCl after 0.268 minutes and at 200 C?
