Practice Problems on the Relationship between Kinetics and Equilibrium 1. Suppose that, for the elementary reaction A B k 1 k 1 C k 1 1 4 10 3 Lmol 1 s 1 and the equilibrium constant K 1 2 10 15 . What is k 1 ? Notes: Watch your units. For reasons which we shall see later, equilibrium constants have no units, but for the sake of figuring out the units of k 1 , pretend that this one has units of L/mol. 2. Consider the reaction mechanism A B k 1 k 1 C C A k 2 k 2 D (a) Identify each species appearing in this mechanism as a reactant, product or intermedi-
