Unformatted text preview: Midterm I Preparation Guide Chem 111, Fall 2010 Dr. Kalju Kahn, UCSB The first midterm will test your knowledge and understanding of topics and techniques that we have covered so far. Some of the important topics that you should know are: 1) Introductory topics a. The importance of kinetics in technology and everyday life b. The role of kinetics in understanding reaction mechanisms c. The goal and scope of kinetic studies d. Connection between reaction energy diagrams, rates, and equilibrium e. Qualitative understanding of effect of temperature on reaction rates 2) Rate laws, reaction order and reaction mechanisms a. The definition of reaction rate as the rate of change of concentrations with time b. Reaction stoichiometry; extent of reactions (see Metius book) and rate laws c. Differential and integrated forms of rate laws d. Differential and integral methods for determination of reaction order e. Initial rates method: advantages and issues f. Elementary and complex reactions g. Reaction molecularity and reaction order...
