Unformatted text preview: A plot of the concentration [A]t as a function of time will give a straight line. - - Intercept = [A]0; slope = - k. Chapter 5.3 Cont’d Second- Order Reactions - Concentration vs time profile - A plot of vs. time is linear with a slope of k, and an intercept of Chapter 5.4 Transition States and Activation Energies - All systems have a tendency to adopt a low enthalpy; this is one of the reasons why many chemical reactions occur “spontaneously” - Reactants and products of a chemical reaction always separated by an activation energy barrier Ea. The height of the barrier can be measured in (kJ/mol) - The highest point is known as the transition state - Only molecules that have enough ac...
