Despite large exothermicity, the H 2 + O 2 reaction does not occur at an appreciable rate in the absence of an ignition source. Once ignition occurs, however, reaction occurs rapidly via a multistep reaction mechanism. These facts were known to engineers involved in the preparation of Hindenburg as a H 2- bearing airship; however, their efforts to remove all possibilities of ignition ultimately failed. Oh, the humanity! Chapter 13: Chemical Kinetics: The how of chemical reactions-How: fast is the reaction? (rates/rate laws)-How: reactants evolve into products (mechanism) Objectives today: 1. Develop tools to compare proposed reaction mechanisms with measured rate laws. Text: Chapter 13: Section 5; Next class: Chapter 13: Section 6 hem 165 Class 13 Clicker Question From Last Class: The information provided in the table shows the rate constant of the reaction at two temperatures. Use the provided data to find the activation energy of this reaction. Remember that R = 8.314 J/mol K-5.757 1.91 10-3 3.16 10-3 524.4-10.589 2.16 10-3 2.52 10-5 462.9 ln k 1/ T (K-1 ) k (s-1 ) T (K) CH 3 NC( g ) CH...
