Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 2.0 points What is meant by the term “rate law of the chemical reaction?” 1. The rate law of a chemical reaction is a thermodynamic property that can be de- termined spectroscopically or calculated from the ΔH of the net ionic equation for any redox reaction. 2. The rate law of a chemical reaction is a mathematical expression that shows the re- lationship between the concentrations of the reactants and how fast the reaction occurs. 3. The rate law of a chemical reaction is used to calculate the distance traveled by the reactants in a given amount of time. 4. The rate law of a chemical reaction is a universal scientific law like the law of gravity or Newton’s laws of motion, and describes a fundamental truth about the rate of every chemical reaction. Like any other scientific law, the rate law does not change and is never violated. 5. The rate law of a chemical reaction is the effective speed limit of the reaction, and is the maximum allowable rate at which the reaction can occur....
