Kinetics is the study of the rates of chemical reactions Rate is the change of concentration per unit time Units are in mol/L•s rate = c t Δ Δ
Background image of page 2
Square brackets are used to denote molar concentration Rate is expressed either as rate of appearance of product or rate of disappearance of reactant The rate of reaction is ALWAYS a positive number, regardless of which species is measured rate = Δ c Δ t = Δ product [ ] Δ t = ± Δ reactant [ ] Δ t

The concentration of a reactant changes from 0.49 M to 0.31 M during the time interval from 20.0 s to 40.0 s (line (c) in the graph). What is the average rate over this interval?
Background image of page 6
The average reaction rate depends on the size of the time interval As Δ t approaches zero, the average reaction rate approaches a value equal to the slope of the line drawn tangent to the curve at time t This value is called the instantaneous rate of the reaction

The relative rates of consumption of reactants and formation of products depend on the reaction stoichiometry For the reaction 2HBr (g) H 2 (g) + Br 2 (g) two moles of HBr are consumed for every one mole of H 2 which is formed [ ] [ ] = Δ Δ Δ Δ HBr t H t 2 2

For any reaction a A + b B c C + d D the reaction rate is given by rate = ± Δ [A] a Δ t = ± Δ [B] b Δ t = Δ [C] c Δ t = Δ [D] d Δ t

In a powerful laser beam water decomposes into its elements, producing hydrogen at the rate of 0.12 mol/L•s. 2 H 2 O >>> 2 H 2 + O 2 a) What is the rate of appearance of oxygen b) What is the rate of disappearance of water? c) What is the reaction rate ?

Experimental Rate Law : the rate of a reaction is proportional to the product of the concentrations of the reactants raised to some power. For a reaction a A + b B products the rate law is the equation rate = k[A] x [B] y
Background image of page 12
rate = k[A] x [B] y x and y are the orders of the reaction in [A] and [B] respectively the overall order of the reaction is x + y x and y are usually small integers, but may be zero, negative, or fractions k is the specifc rate constant

The reaction orders are determined by noting the effect that concentration changes in each reactant have on the rate k is evaluated once the orders in the rate law are known
Background image of page 14
The initial rate method measures the time, during which a known small fraction of the reactants are consumed Experiments are performed in which [A] and [B] are individually varied The time period of measurement is small enough that the average rate is approximately the instantaneous rate

It is helpful to express concentrations and rates on a relative scale, by dividing the entries in each column by the smallest value.
