Factors that Affect Reaction Rates
Kinetics is the study of how fast chemical reactions occur. There are 4 important factors which affect rates of reactions: reactant concentration, temperature, action of catalysts, and surface area. Goal: to understand chemical reactions at the molecular level.

C4H9Cl(aq) + H2O(l)  C4H9OH(aq) + HCl(aq)
Reaction Rates Change of Rate with Time Consider: C4H9Cl(aq) + H2O(l)  C4H9OH(aq) + HCl(aq)

C4H9Cl(aq) + H2O(l)  C4H9OH(aq) + HCl(aq)
Reaction Rates Change of Rate with Time C4H9Cl(aq) + H2O(l)  C4H9OH(aq) + HCl(aq) We can calculate the average rate in terms of the disappearance of C4H9Cl. The units for average rate are mol/L·s or M/s. The average rate decreases with time. We plot [C4H9Cl] versus time. The rate at any instant in time (instantaneous rate) is the slope of the tangent to the curve. Instantaneous rate is different from average rate. We usually call the instantaneous rate the rate.

Reaction Rates For the reaction A  B there are two ways of measuring rate: the speed at which the products appear (i.e. change in moles of B per unit time), or the speed at which the reactants disappear (i.e. the change in moles of A per unit time).

Reaction Rates Reaction Rate and Stoichiometry In general for:
aA + bB  cC + dD

Rate is (-) if reagent is consumed.
Rate is (+) if compound is produced. Rate will ultimately be (+) because change in concentration will be negative. Two (-)’s become (+).

Take Note: Rate must ALWAYS be a positive value!

Rate Comparison 2NO  2NO O2 *If main interest is on the consumption of starting reagent, then: Rate = - D[NO2] = D[NO] = 2 D[O2] D t D t D t Since 2 NO2 molecules are consumed for every O2

Take Note! Since the direction of equilibrium changes as more product is produced, rates have to be determined as soon as the experiment has begun.

2N2O5 4NO2 + O2 [N2O5] (mol/L) Time (sec) 0.100 0.0707 50 0.0500 100
0.0707 50 0.0500 100 0.0250 200 0.0125 300 400

Sample Problem A. How is the rate at which ozone (O3) disappears related to the rate at which O2 appears in the reaction: 2 O3 (g)  3 O2 (g)? B. If the rate at which O2 appears, D[O2]/Dt, is 6.0 x 10-5 M/s at a particular instant, at what rate is O3 disappearing at this same time, D[O3]/Dt?

Answers A. “Related to” means compare, so write the rate expression comparing the compounds. B x 10-5 M/s

Sample Problem The decomposition of N2O5 proceeds according to the following equation: N2O5 (g) 4 NO2 (g) O2 (g) If the rate of the decomposition of N2O5 at a particular instant in a reaction vessel is 4.2 x 10-7 M/s, what is the rate of appearance of: (a) NO2, (b) O2 ?

Differential Rate Law Example: Rate = k[A]n
- is a rate law that expresses how rate is dependent on concentration Example: Rate = k[A]n

Differential First Order Rate Law
First Order Reaction Rate dependent on concentration If concentration of starting reagent was doubled, rate of production of compounds would also double

Concentration and Rate
Using Initial Rates to Determines Rate Laws A reaction is zero order in a reactant if the change in concentration of that reactant produces no effect. A reaction is first order if doubling the concentration causes the rate to double. A reacting is nth order if doubling the concentration causes an 2n increase in rate. Note that the rate constant does not depend on concentration.

Differential Rate Law Rate = k[A]n Rate = k[A]n[B]m
For single reactants: A  C Rate = k[A]n For 2 or more reactants: A + B  C Rate = k[A]n[B]m Rate = k[A]n[B]m[C]p

Concentration and Rate
Exponents in the Rate Law For a general reaction with rate law we say the reaction is mth order in reactant 1 and nth order in reactant 2. The overall order of reaction is m + n + …. A reaction can be zeroth order if m, n, … are zero. Note the values of the exponents (orders) have to be determined experimentally. They are not simply related to stoichiometry.

Concentration and Rate
In general rates increase as concentrations increase. NH4+(aq) + NO2-(aq)  N2(g) + 2H2O(l)

Concentration and Rate
Rate law: The constant k is the rate constant.

Problem NH4+ + NO2- N2 + 2H2O Give the general rate law equation for rxn. Derive rate order. Derive general rate order. Solve for the rate constant k.

To Determine the Orders of the Reaction (n, m, p, etc….)
1. Write Rate law equation. 2. Get ratio of 2 rate laws from successive experiments. Ratio = rate Expt.2 = k2[NH4+]n[NO2-]m rate Expt k1[NH4+]n[NO2-]m 3. Derive reaction order. 4. Derive overall reaction order.

Use the data in table 12.5 to determine
1) The orders for all three reactants 2) The overall reaction order 3) The value of the rate constant

Consider the general reaction aA + bB cC and the
Sample Problem:. Consider the general reaction aA + bB cC and the following average rate data over some time period Δt: Determine a set of possible coefficients to balance this general reaction.

Problem Reaction: A + B  C obeys the rate law: Rate = k[A]2[B].
A. If [A] is doubled (keeping B constant), how will rate change? B. Will rate constant k change? Explain. C. What are the reaction orders for A & B? D. What are the units of the rate constant?

You now know that…. The rate expression correlates consumption of reactant to production of product. For a reaction: 3A  2B - 1D[A] = 1D[B] 3 Dt 2 Dt The differential rate law allows you to correlate rate with concentration based on the format: Rate = k [A]n

You also know that… 1. Rate of consumption of reactant decreases over time because the concentration of reactant decreases. Lower concentration equates to lower rate. 2. If a graph of concentration vs. time were constructed, the graph is not a straight line

Experiment 23 You varied concentration of KIO3 and held the concentration of NaHSO3 constant. From Expt. A  E, you increased the amount of KIO3. Observed result: The time it took for the reaction to occur DECREASED.

Higher concentration of KIO3 lead to faster rate of reaction.
Conclusion Higher concentration of KIO3 lead to faster rate of reaction.

How can we make the line straight
How can we make the line straight? What is the relationship between concentration and time?

By graphing concentration vs. 1/time?

The Integrated Rate Law makes this possible!

Integrated Rate Law Expresses the dependence of concentration on time

The Change of Concentration with Time
First Order Reactions Goal: convert rate law into a convenient equation to give concentrations as a function of time. For a first order reaction, the rate doubles as the concentration of a reactant doubles.

Integrated Rate Laws Zero Order: [A]t = -kt + [A]o
First Order: ln[A]t = -kt + ln[A]o Second Order: = kt [A]t [A]o where [A]o is the initial concentration and [A]t is the final concentration.

Integrated First-Order Rate Law
ln[A]t = -kt + ln[A]0 Eqn. shows [concn] as a function of time Gives straight-line plot since equation is of the form y = mx + b
