Reaction Mechanisms 1 An AP Chemistry In-Class Activity 1) What is a reaction mechanism? 2) What is an elementary step? Use an example. 3) In finding the sum of proposed elementary steps, what did you do last semester that had a similar process? How does this process work? 4) What is the rate-limiting step? Give an example. Why is it important? 5) What is meant by an unstable intermediate? What is it the intermediate between? 6) What does molecularity mean? 7) How are the rate laws (1st order, 2nd order) related to molecularity?
