The Rate of Reaction ***cannot look at a balanced reaction to determine the rate order: must do experimentally ***ALL RATE EXPRESSIONS ARE DETERMINED EXPERIMENTALLY Example : Rate α [X] 2 or Rate = k[X] 2 -2 nd order = concentration will be squared -Factors that can influence the rate of reaction 1. The nature of the reactants 2. The concentration of the reactants 3. The temperature of the reaction 4. The presence of a catalyst A (α) + B (α) → Products Example 16-1 -between Exp 1 and Exp 3, [A] stays the same, [B] changes, rate stays the same -the order with respect to B is 0 (because rate stays the same even though [B] changes -between Exp 1 and Exp 2, [A] doubles, rate doubles -the order with respect to A is 1 (because rate doubles) Rate = k[A] 1 [B] 0 -to solve for k, take a set of data and plug into equation k = 0.0020 s -1 ***First order reaction: 1/time ***Second order: 1/concentration unit x time Example 16-2 Rate = k[A] 1 [B] 1 [C] 0 -between Exp 1 and Exp 3, [C] triples, rate stays the same -the order with respect to C is 0 (rate stays the same even though [C] changes)
