46 Chem 162-2007 Final exam + answers Chapter 13 - Kinetics Reaction mechanisms, activation energy and catalysts concepts Which statement regarding the collision theory of kinetics is true ? A. All reactants that collide with enough energy form products. B . Only a fraction of the collisions with enough energy to form products actually proceeds from reactants to products. C. All reactants that collide with the correct orientation form products. D. Reactants that collide with kinetic energy greater than ∆H go on to form products. E. E a of the reverse reaction is always greater than E a of the forward reaction. A. False. The steric factor is important also. Even if there is enough energy in the collision, if the molecules aren’t oriented properly then products won’t form. In addition, there is an equilibrium, which is to say that the transition state dissociates partly back to reactants and partly to products, depending on G. B. True. Even if they have enough energy their orientation may be wrong. In addition, there is an equilibrium, which is to say that the transition state dissociates partly back to reactants and partly to products, depending on G. C. False. The energy of activation factor is important also. Even if the molecules collide in the correct orientation, if they don’t have enough energy they won’t form products. In addition, there is an equilibrium, which is to say that the transition state dissociates partly back to reactants and partly to products, depending on G. D. False. H is irrelevant to the energy necessary to have fruitful collisions. The energy has to be at least that of the energy of activation. In addition, there is an equilibrium, which is to say that the transition state dissociates partly back to reactants and partly to products, depending on G. E. False. E a of the reverse reaction is greater than E a of the forward reaction only when the enthalpy of the product is less than the enthalpy of the reactant. 2

14. CHEM 162-2007 EXAM I + ANSWERS CHAPTER 13 – KINETICS REACTION MECHANISMS, ACTIVATION ENERGY & CATALYSTS CONCEPTS Which statement is not correct regarding the function of a catalyst? A) It lowers the activation energy. B) It changes the mechanism of a reaction. C) It affects the rate of a chemical reaction. D) It lowers the energy of the product causing the reaction to be more exothermic. E) It is regenerated in the reaction. (A) True. (B) True. (C) True. (D) False. A catalyst only lowers the energy of activation. It has no effect on the energy of the reactants or the products.
