5.60 Spring 2008 Lecture #32 page 1 Complex Reactions and Mechanisms (continued) III) Reversible Reactions k 1 [ B ] A B K = eq k -1 eq [] eq A If 1 st order, R forward = R f = k 1 [A] R backward = R b = k -1 [B] At Equilibrium, R f = R b k 1 [A] eq = k -1 [B] eq K eq = k 1 k 1 a) 1 st order reversible reactions k 1 d[A] B = k 1 [A] k 1 [B] dt [B] = [B] o + ([A] o – [A]) So… d[A] = k 1 k 1 ( B o + A o A ) dt A k -1

5.60 Spring 2008 Lecture #32 page 3 b) Higher order reactions k 2 e.g. A + B C 2 nd order forward, k -1 1 st order backward d[A] [ C ] eq k dt = k 2 [A][B] k 1 [C] , K = [] A eq eq , K = 2 1 B k After much calculation, get… A mess!
