Rate of reaction {symbol: R, v,..} Stoichiometric equation m A + n B = p X + q Y Rate = (1/m) d[A]/dt = (1/n) d[B]/dt = + (1/p) d[X]/dt = + (1/q) d[Y]/dt –Units: (concentration/time) –in SI mol/m 3 /s, more practically mol dm –3 s –1 9

10
10 5Br - + BrO 3 - + 6H + = 3Br 2 + 3H 2 O Rate?conc/time or in SI mol dm -3 s -1 – (1/5)(d[Br - ]/dt) = – (1/6) (d[H + ]/dt) = (1/3)(d[Br 2 ]/dt) = (1/3)(d[H 2 O]/dt) Rate law? Comes from experiment Rate = k [Br - ][BrO 3 - ][H + ] 2 where k is the rate constant (variable units) Rate of reaction {symbol: R,n,..}

11
11 Rate Law How does the rate depend upon [ ]s? Find out by experiment The Rate Law equation R = k n [A] [B] … (for many reactions) –order, n = + + … (dimensionless) –rate constant, k n (units depend on n) –Rate = k n when each [conc] = unity

12
12 Experimental rate laws? CO + Cl 2 COCl 2 Rate = k [CO][Cl 2 ] 1/2 –Order = 1.5 or one-and-a-half order H 2 + I 2 2HI Rate = k [H 2 ][I 2 ] –Order = 2 or second order H 2 + Br 2 2HBr Rate = k [H 2 ][Br 2 ] / (1 + k’ {[HBr]/[Br 2 ]} ) –Order = undefined or none

13
Determining the Rate Law Integration –Trial & error approach –Not suitable for multi-reactant systems –Most accurate Initial rates –Best for multi-reactant reactions –Lower accuracy Flooding or Isolation –Composite technique –Uses integration or initial rates methods

14
14 Integration of rate laws Order of reaction For a reaction aA products, the rate law is: rate of change in the concentration of A

15
15 First-order reaction

16
16 First-order reaction A plot of ln[A] versus t gives a straight line of slope ̶ k A if r = k A [A] 1

17
17 First-order reaction

18
18 A P assume that -(d[A]/dt) = k [A] 1

19
19 Integrated rate equation ln [A] = -k t + ln [A] 0 Slope = -k 1 st Order reaction

20
20 Half life: first-order reaction The time taken for [A] to drop to half its original value is called the reaction’s half-life, t 1/2. Setting [A] = ½[A] 0 and t = t 1/2 in:

21
21 Half life: first-order reaction

22
22 When is a reaction over? [A] = [A] 0 exp{-kt} Technically [A]=0 only after infinite time

23
23 Second-order reaction

24
24 Second-order reaction A plot of 1/[A] versus t gives a straight line of slope k A if r = k A [A] 2

25
25 Second order test: A + A P Slope = k 2 nd Order reaction

28
Initial Rate Method 5 Br - + BrO 3 - + 6 H + 3 Br 2 + 3 H 2 O General example: A + B +… P + Q + … Rate law: rate = k [A] [B] …?? log R 0 = log[A] 0 + (log k+ log[B] 0 +…) y = mx + c Do series of expts. in which all [B] 0, etc are constant and only [A] 0 is varied; measure R 0 Plot log R 0 (Y-axis) versus log [A] 0 (X-axis) Slope 28

29
Example: R 0 = k [NO] [H 2 ] 2 NO + 2H 2 N 2 + 2H 2 O Expt.[NO] 0 [H 2 ] 0 R 0 –1 25 102.4 × 10 -3 –2 25 51.2 × 10 -3 –3 12.5 100.6 × 10 -3 Deduce orders wrt NO and H 2 and calculate k. Compare experiments #1 and #2 Compare experiments #1 and #3 Now, solve for k from k = R 0 / ([NO] [H 2 ] ) 29

30
How to measure initial rate? Key: - (d[A]/dt) - ( [A]/ t) ( [P]/dt) A + B + … P + Q + … t=0 100 100 0 0 mol m 3 10 s 99 99 1 1 ditto Rate? (100-99)/10 = -0.10 mol m 3 s 1 +(0-1)/10 = -0.10 mol m 3 s 1 Conclusion? Use product analysis for best accuracy. 30

31
Isolation / flooding IO 3 - + 8 I - + 6 H + 3 I 3 - + 3 H 2 O Rate = k [IO 3 - ] [I - ] [H + ] … –Add excess iodate to reaction mix –Hence [IO 3 - ] is effectively constant –Rate = k [I - ] [H + ] … –Add excess acid –Therefore [H + ] is effectively constant Rate k [I - ] Use integral or initial rate methods as desired 31

32
32 Rate law for elementary reaction Law of Mass Action applies: –rate of rxn product of active masses of reactants –“active mass” molar concentration raised to power of number of species Examples: – A P + Qrate = k 1 [A] 1 – A + B C + Drate = k 2 [A] 1 [B] 1 –2A + B E + F + Grate = k 3 [A] 2 [B] 1

33
33 Molecularity of elementary reactions? Unimolecular (decay) A P –(d[A]/dt) = k 1 [A] Bimolecular (collision) A + B P –(d[A]/dt) = k 2 [A] [B] Termolecular (collision) A + B + C P –(d[A]/dt) = k 3 [A] [B] [C] No other are feasible! Statistically highly unlikely.

34
CO + Cl 2 X COCl 2 34 Experimental rate law: –(d[CO]/dt) = k [CO] [Cl 2 ] 1/2 –Conclusion?: reaction does not proceed as written –“Elementary” reactions; rxns. that proceed as written at the molecular level. Cl 2 Cl + Cl(1) Cl + CO COCl(2) COCl + Cl 2 COCl 2 + Cl(3) Cl + Cl Cl 2 (4) –Steps 1 thru 4 comprise the “mechanism” of the reaction. decay collisional

35
35 - (d[CO]/dt) = k 2 [Cl] [CO] If steps 2 & 3 are slow in comparison to 1 & 4 then, Cl 2 ⇌ 2Cl or K = [Cl] 2 / [Cl 2 ] So [Cl] = K × [Cl 2 ] 1/2 Hence: - (d[CO] / dt) = k 2 × K × [CO][Cl 2 ] 1/2 Predict that: observed k = k 2 × K Therefore mechanism confirmed (?)

36
H 2 + I 2 2 HI Predict: + (1/2) (d[HI]/dt) = k [H 2 ] [I 2 ] But if via: – I 2 2 I –I + I + H 2 2 HI rate = k 2 [I] 2 [H 2 ] – I + I I 2 Assume, as before, that 1 & 3 are fast cf. to 2 Then: I 2 ⇌ 2 I or K = [I] 2 / [I 2 ] Rate = k 2 [I] 2 [H 2 ] = k 2 K [I 2 ] [H 2 ] (identical) Check? I 2 + h 2 I (light of 578 nm) 36

37
Problem In the decomposition of azomethane, A, at a pressure of 21.8 kPa & a temperature of 576 K the following concentrations were recorded as a function of time, t: Time, t /mins 0 30 60 90120 [A] / mmol dm 3 8.706.524.893.672.75 Show that the reaction is 1 st order in azomethane & determine the rate constant at this temperature. 37

38
Recognise that this is a rate law question dealing with the integral method. - (d[A]/dt) = k [A] ? = k [A] 1 Re-arrange & integrate (bookwork) Test: ln [A] = - k t + ln [A] 0 Complete table: Time, t /mins 0 30 60 90120 ln [A]2.161.881.591.301.01 Plot ln [A] along y-axis; t along x-axis Is it linear? Yes. Conclusion follows. Calc. slope as: -0.00959 so k = + 9.6 × 10 -3 min -1 38
