Reaction Mechanism Practice 1. Determine if the reaction mechanism below is plausible for the overall reaction: A + 3 B C B + B D [ slow ] A + D E B + E C Given the following experimental data: The elementary steps do add up to the overall reaction mechanism (D and E are intermediates) The slow step suggests second order for B, and the experimental data corresponds. No elementary step has more than three reactants. Yes, this is a plausible reaction mechanism.

Unformatted text preview: Ca(OH) 2 + 2 HCl 2 H 2 O + CaCl 2 is plausible: Ca(OH) 2 Ca 2+ + 2 OH-[ slow ] 2 HCl + 2 OH- 2 H 2 O + 2 Cl − Ca 2+ + 2 Cl − CaCl 2 The reaction is found to be first order overall with regard to Ca(OH) 2 The elementary steps add up to the overall reaction The slow step suggests first order with respect to Ca(OH) 2 , matching experimental evidence. X The second elementary step has four reactants This is not a plausible reaction mechanism....
