AP CHEMISTRY CHAPTER 12 KINETICS
2 Chemical Kinetics Thermodynamics tells us if a reaction can occur Kinetics tells us how quickly the reaction occurs –some reactions that are thermodynamically feasible are kinetically so slow as to be imperceptible
Reaction Rate- change in concentration of a reactant or product per unit time. [A] = concentration in mol/L Rate = [A] t
If the rate expression involves a reactant: Rate = − [A] t (negative because [ ] decreases) The above gives the average rate.
2NO 2 2NO + O 2
To get an instantaneous rate, we can compute the slope of a line tangent to the curve at that point. Rate = −(slope of the tangent line)
The rate of a reaction is not constant but changes with time because concentrations change with time. We will only work with reaction rates that are “initial rates” (reverse reaction is negligible)
Differential Rate Law or Rate Equation For the reaction aA+bB + … gG +hH+ … Rate = k[A] m [B] n … [A] & [B] represent molarities
The exponents are positive or negative, integers or fractions. usually positive integers (small whole numbers) k = rate constant *value depends on reaction, temperature and presence of a catalyst *faster the reaction, larger the k value
The exponents determine the order of the reactants. The sum of the exponents is the order of the reaction. R = k[A][B] 2 is first order in A, second order in B and third order overall.
The units of k can be calculated by reaction orders and units of concentration and rate. For example, if rate is in mol/L s in the above rate law, we can find the units for k as follows: Rate = k so k = mol [A][B] 2 L s mol mol 2 L L 2 This simplifies to: k = L 2 mol 2. s
The “shortcut” to determining units of k is as follows: k = L x /(mol x. time). The value of x will be one less than the order of the reaction. If the reaction is 3rd order, k = L 2 /mol 2. time. If the reaction is 2nd order, k = L/mol. time If the reaction is 1st order, k = 1/time
Determining Differential Rate Laws from Experimental Data If doubling the initial [ ] of a reactant causes the initial rate to double, the reaction is first order in that reactant.
If doubling the initial [ ] of a reactant causes the initial rate to quadruple, the reaction is second order in that reactant.
If doubling the initial [ ] of a reactant does not change the initial rate, the reaction is zero order in that reactant and that reactant is removed from the rate law.
2A + B 2C Ex. [A] [B] Rate Determine the rate law: Rate = k[A] x [B] y Rate = k[A] x [B] 1 Rate = k[A] 2 [B] 1 22 Because 2 1 =2, B is 1 st order Because 2 2 =4, A is 2 nd order 14 2
A B [A] Rate x x x Determine the rate law: Rate = k[A] x Rate = k[A] Because 2 2 =4, A is 2 nd order
A + B C Exp [A] [B] Rate ×10 ×10 ×10 5 Determine the rate law: Rate = k[A] x [B] y Rate = k[A] 0 [B] y Rate = k [B] Because 2 1 =2, B is 1 st order Because 2 0 =1, A is 0 order
A + 2B 2C Ex. [A] [B] Rate Determine the rate law: Rate = k[A] x [B] y Rate = k[A] 1 [B] y Rate = k[A] 1 [B] 0 Rate = k[A] Because 2 1 =2, A is 1 st order No control in this example. Because doubling A causes the rate to double, doubling B must have had no effect. B is zero order.
NH NO 2 N 2 + 2H 2 Exp [NH 4 + ] [NO 2 ] Rate(mol/Lmin) × 10 × 10 × 10 7 Determine the rate law: Determine the value of k and its units: Rate = k[NH 4 + ] x [NO 2 ] y Rate = k[NH 4 + ] x [NO 2 ] 1 Rate = k[NH 4 + ] [NO 2 ] 1.35×10 7 mol/Lmin = k(0.100mol/L)(0.005mol/L) k = 2.7 ×10 4 L/mol. min Because 2 1 =2, NH 4 + is 1 st order orer Because 2 1 =2, NO 2 - is 1 st order
Experiment[A][B]Initial Rate mol L -1 s Determine the rate law: Rate = k[A] x [B] y 4 2 =16 so [A] is 2 nd order 1416 Rate = k[A] 2 [B] y Because A is 2 nd order, doubling A will cause the rate to quadruple. When both A and B were doubled, the rate was 16 times greater. This means that B is also 2 nd order. Rate = k[A] 2 [B] 2 Determine the value of k and its units mol L -1 s -1 = k(10.1mol/L) 2 (2.01mol/L) 2 k = L 3 mol -3 s -1
Integrated Rate Law -expresses how the concentration of the reactant depends on time -instead of changing initial concentrations and using multiple experiments, one experiment is done and concentration changes over time are measured.
1 st order integrated rate law
A plot of ln[A] vs t always gives a straight line for a 1 st order reaction. The slope = -k
Ex. At 400 o C, the 1 st order conversion of cyclopropane into propylene has a rate constant of 1.16 × s -1. If the initial concentration of cyclopropane is 1.00 × mol/L at 400 o C, what will its concentration be 24.0 hrs after the reaction begins? 24 hrs 3600s = 86400s 1 hr ln[A] t = −kt ln [A] t = −1.16×10 −6 (86400) [A] ×10 −2 [A] t = 9.05×10 −3
Radioactive decay is first order. Half-life (t 1/2 ) is the length of time required for the concentration of a reactant to decrease to half of its initial value. t 1/2 = 0.693/k Where does come from? It is the natural log of 2.
A fast reaction with a short t 1/2 has a large k. A slow reaction with a long t 1/2 has a small k.
A Plot of (N 2 O 5 ) Versus Time for the Decomposition Reaction of N 2 O 5
Example: The decomposition of SO 2 Cl and Cl 2 is a first order reaction with k = 2.2×10 −5 s −1 at 320 o C. Determine the half- life of this reaction. t 1/2 = 0.693/k t 1/2 = 0.693/(2.2×10 −5 s −1 ) t 1/2 = s or 525 min or 8.75 hours
Example: The decomposition of N 2 O 5 dissolved in CCl 4 is a first order reaction. The chemical change is: 2N 2 O 5 4NO 2 + O 2 At 45 o C the reaction was begun with an initial N 2 O 5 concentration of 1.00 mol/L. After 3.00 hours the N 2 O 5 concentration had decreased to 1.21×10 −3 mol/L. What is the half-life of N 2 O 5 expressed in minutes at 45 o C? ln [A] t = −kt [A] 0 ln 1.21 × 10 3 = −k(180 min) 1.00 k = min 1 t 1/2 = 0.693/k t 1/2 = 0.693/ min 1 = 18.6 min
Second order integrated rate law Rate = k[A] = kt [A] t [A] 0 A plot of 1/[A] t versus t produces a straight line with slope k. Differential rate law

Zero Order Rate = k [A] t [A] o = kt A plot of [A] versus t produces a straight line with slope -k. Differential rate law This equation is not found on the AP formula sheet and will not have to be calculated. Make sure that you understand the graphing.
A Plot of (A) Versus t for a Zero-Order Reaction
An easy way to keep the graphs straight is to remember CLR=0,1,2 C=concentration, L = ln concentration, R=reciprical of concentration If the concentration vs time is straight, it is C (0 order). If natural log of concentration vs time is straight it is L=1 st order. If reciprical of concentration vs time is straight it is R=2 nd order. CLR 0 1 2
What order is this reaction?
Reaction Mechanisms intermediate - a species that is neither a product nor a reactant in the overall equation -is used up in a subsequent step elementary step- a reaction whose rate law can be written from its molecularity (balanced equation)
molecularity- the number of species that must collide to produce the reaction represented by the elementary step. Unimolecular step- a reaction step involving only one molecule Bimolecular step- a reaction step involving the collision of two molecules (Rate law always 2 nd order)
Rate-determining step -slowest step Lucy clip Elementary Reaction -agrees with the balanced equation Lucy clip
Reaction mechanisms must: 1. Add up to the overall balanced equation. 2. Agree with the rate law
We can’t prove a mechanism absolutely. We can only come up with a possible mechanism. Look at this video where we can see that the reaction is occuring through a series of steps (mechanism). This is called a “clock reaction”. clock reaction clock reaction
The iodine clock reaction uses a solution of iodate ion to which an acidified solution of sodium bisulfite is added. Iodide ion is generated by the following slow reaction between the iodate and bisulfite: IO 3 − (aq) + 3HSO 3 − (aq) → I − (aq) + 3HSO 4 − (aq) This is the rate determining step. The iodate in excess will oxidize the iodide generated above to form iodine: IO 3 − (aq) + 5I − (aq) + 6H + (aq) → 3I 2 + 3H 2 O (l) However, the iodine is reduced immediately back to iodide by the bisulfite: I 2 (aq) + HSO 3 − (aq) + H 2 O (l) → 2I − (aq) + HSO 4 − (aq) + 2H + (aq) When the bisulfite is fully consumed, the iodine will survive (i.e., no reduction by the bisulfite) to form the dark blue complex with starch.
Ex. Elementary Rxn : NO + N 2 O NO 2 + N 2 Rate Law: R = k[NO][N 2 O]
Ex. The reaction 2NO 2 (g) + F 2 (g) 2NO 2 F is thought to proceed via the following two- step mechanism: NO 2 + F 2 NO 2 F + F slow F + NO 2 NO 2 F fast Rate law for the reaction: Rate = k[NO 2 ][F 2 ]
When an intermediate is a reactant in the rate-determining step, the derivation of the rate law is more difficult.
Ex. NO 2 + CO NO + CO 2 k 1 Mechanism: NO 2 + NO 2 NO 3 + NO Both fast w/ k 1 equal rates NO 3 + CO CO 2 + NO 2 slow
Ex. NO 2 + CO NO + CO 2 k 1 Mechanism: NO 2 + NO 2 NO 3 + NO Both fast w/ k -1 equal rates NO 3 + CO CO 2 + NO 2 slow Slow step determines rate law (rate-determining step) Rate law: R = k[NO 3 ][CO] But, NO 3 was an intermediate. We must come up with something equal to NO 3 to substitute. k[NO 2 ] 2 = k[NO 3 ][NO] [NO 3 ] = [NO 2 ] 2 [NO] R = k [NO 2 ] 2 [CO] [NO]
Ex. Cl 2 + CHCl 3 HCl + CCl 4 Mechanism k 1 Cl 2 2Cl fast k -1 Cl + CHCl 3 HCl + CCl 3 slow Cl + CCl 3 CCl 4 fast Rate Law: R = k[Cl][CHCl 3 ] Cl is an intermediate k[Cl 2 ] = k[Cl] 2 [Cl 2 ] 1/2 = [Cl] R = k[Cl 2 ] 1/2 [CHCl 3 ]
Increasing temperature increases reaction speed. Rate and rate constants often double for every 10 o increase in temperature. (Rule of thumb)

Molecules must collide to react. Only a small portion of collisions produce a reaction.
Several Possible Orientations for a Collision Between Two BrNO Molecules
Activation energy (E A ) - energy that must be overcome to produce a chemical reaction.
Rate of reaction depends on E A, not E. E has no effect on rate of reaction. The higher the E A, the slower the reaction at a given temperature.
Molecules and collisions have varying energies. As temperature increases, more collisions will have sufficient energy to overcome the activation energy. As temperature doubles, the fraction of effective collisions increases exponentially. Reaction rate is smaller than would be predicted from the number of collisions having sufficient energy to react. This is because of molecular orientations.
2 factors: 1. sufficient energy 2. proper orientation
Arrhenius Equation- -can be used to calculate E A ln k = ln A - E A k = rate constant RT R = J/K mol T = Kelvin temp A = frequency factor (constant as temperature changes) E A = activation energy As E A increases, k decreases. This calculation is not required on the AP exam.
The Arrhenius equation describes a line. We can plot 1/T vs ln k and get a straight line whose slope is equal to -E A /R.
Plot of In(k) Versus 1/T for the Reaction 2N 2 O 5 (g) g) + O 2 (g) Slope = -E A /R
A variation of the Arrhenius equation can be used to calculate E A or to find k at another temperature if E A is known: ln k 1 = E A k 2 R T 2 T 1 This calculation is not required on the AP exam.
Catalysis Catalysts, such as enzymes in a biological system or the surfaces in an automobile's catalytic converter, increase the rate of a chemical reaction.
catalyst- substance that speeds up a reaction without being consumed. -produces a new reaction pathway with a lower activation energy -A catalyst lowers the E A for both the forward and reverse reaction. Some catalysts change the mechanism of the reaction greatly and others simply change the rate-determining step.
enzymes- biological catalysts
homogeneous catalyst- present in the same phase as the reacting molecules (usually liquid phase)
heterogeneous catalyst- exists in a different phase -usually involves gaseous reactants being adsorbed on the surface of a solid catalyst (such as a car’s catalytic converter) Either a new reaction intermediate is formed or the probability of successful collisions is increased. This is sometimes called a surface catalyst. Absorption involves penetration.
