Figure 36.1 Figure 36.1 Concentration as a function of time for the conversion of reactant A into product B. The concentration of A at time 0 is [A]0, and the concentration of B is zero. As the reaction proceeds, the loss of A results in the production of B.

36.2 reaction rate Example

Rate law : R = k [A]a[B]b... Reaction order Rate Constant
36.3 rate laws Reaction order Rate law : R = k [A]a[B]b... Rate Constant The rate of reaction is often found to be proportional to the molar concentrations of the reactants raised to a simple power. It cannot be overemphasized that reaction orders have no relation to stoichiometric coefficients, and they are determined by experiment.

36.3.1 Measuring Reaction Rates
36.3 Rate laws Measuring Reaction Rates

36.3.2 Determining Reaction Orders
Strategy 1. Isolation method The reaction is performed with all species but one in excess. Under these conditions, only the concentration of one species will vary to a significant extent during the reaction. R = k’[B]b

36.3.2 Determining Reaction Orders
Strategy 2. Method of initial rates The concentration of a single reactant is changed while holding all other concentrations constant, and the initial rate of the reaction is determined.

Example Problem 36.2 Using the following data for the reaction illustrated in equation Determine the order of the reaction with respect to A and B, and the rate constant for the reaction [A] (M) [B] (M) Initial Rate (Ms-1) 2.3010-4 3.1010-5 5.2510-4 4.6010-4 6.2010-5 4.2010-3 9.2010-4 1.7010-2

Figure 36.3 Figure 36.3 Schematic of a stopped-flow experiment. Two reactants are rapidly introduced into the mixing chamber by syringes. After mixing chamber, the reaction kinetics are monitored by observing the change in sample concentration versus time, in this example by measuring the absorption of light as a function of time after mixing.

Example 36.3 Example Problem 36.3 The decomposition of N2O5 is an important process in tropospheric chemistry. The half-life for the first order decomposition of this compound is 2.05×104 s. How long will it take for a sample of N2O5 to decay to 60% of its initial value? Solution

Example 36.3 Example Problem 36.4 Catbon-14 is a radioactive nucleus with half-life of 5760 years. Living matter exchange carbon with its surroundings (for example, through CO2) so that s constant level of C14 is maintained, corresponding to 15.3 decay events per minute. Once living matter has died, carbon contained in the matter is not exchanged with the surroundings, and the amount of C14 that remains in the dead material decreases with time due to radioactive decay. Consider a piece of fossilized wood that demonstrates 2.4 C decay events per minute. How old is the wood.

36.7 Sequential First-order Reaction
The steady-State Approximation This approximation is particularly god when the decay rate of the intermediate is greater than the rate of production so that the intermediates are present at very small concentrations during the reaction. In Steady-State approximation, the time derivative of intermediate concentrations is se to zero.
