Ch #16: Kinetics Kinetics: Rates and Mechanisms of Chemical Reactions
Chemical kinetics: Study of reaction rates, changes in concentrations of reactants or products as a function of time.
Factors that influence reaction rate: 1.Concentration - molecules must collide to react; Rate α collision frequency α conc 2.Physical state - molecules must mix to collide; Smaller the particle size, greater the surface area and more the collisions. 3.Temperature - molecules must collide with enough energy to react; Rate α collision frequency α conc.

Factors that influence reaction rate: 4.The use of a catalyst.
Expressing the Reaction Rate reaction rate - changes in the concentrations of reactants or products per unit time reactant concentrations decrease while product concentrations increase For a reaction A → B Rate of reaction = -∆[A]/∆t [A]= conc of A in mol/L ∆=change
Expressing the Reaction Rate Units= moles per liter per second. Mol L -1 s -1 or mol/ L.s Change I product conc is positive so the rate is Rate of reaction = ∆[B]/∆t Rate decreases during course of reaction. Instantaneous rate: Rate at a particular instant: considering closer values.
Expressing the Reaction Rate Use initial rate as soon as the reactants are present( no products at this time) For a reaction aA + bB →cC+ dD, Rate =-1/a∆[A]/∆t=- 1/b∆[B]/∆t==1/c∆[C]/∆t==1/d∆[A]/∆t

Problem 1 P.1.2H 2 (g) +O 2 (g)→ 2H 2 O (g) Write the rate equation in terms of reactants and products. If [O2] is decreasing at 0.23 mol/L.s at what rate is [H 2 O] increasing?
The Rate Law and its components: Rate = k[A] m [B] n K= rate constant(does not change as reaction proceeds) M and n are reaction orders. Coefficients are not related to reaction orders. Rate constant and orders can only be found by experimental data.
Determining the Initial Rate: By performing expt and collecting data.
Reaction order: Rate=k[A]- 1 st order Rate = k[A] nd order Rate = k[A] 0 - Zero order OR Rate=k(1)=k (not dependent on conc of A)
Problem 2 P.2.For each of the following reactions, determine the reaction order with respect to each reactant and the overall order from the given rate law. 2NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g); rate = k[NO] 2 [O2] CH3CHO(g) → CH4(g) + CO(g); rate = k[CH3CHO] 3/2
Determining Reaction Orders: P.3.NO 2 (g) + CO (g) → NO (g) + CO 2 (g) rate=k[NO 2 ] m [CO] n
Sample Problem 16.3 PLAN: SOLUTION: Determining Reaction Order from Initial Rate Data PROBLEM:Many gaseous reactions occur in a car engine and exhaust system. One of these is rate = k[NO 2 ] m [CO] n Use the following data to determine the individual and overall reaction orders. ExperimentInitial Rate(mol/L*s)Initial [NO 2 ] (mol/L)Initial [CO] (mol/L) Solve for each reactant using the general rate law using the method described previously. rate = k [NO 2 ] m [CO] n First, choose two experiments in which [CO] remains constant and the [NO 2 ] varies.

The reaction is zero order in CO. rate = k [NO 2 ] 2 [CO] 0 = k [NO 2 ] 2
Determining the Rate constant: Calculated from collected data. Units of Rate constant depend on order.

Problem 6 P.6 Cyclopropane is the smallest cyclic hydrocarbon. Because its 600 bond angles allow poor orbital overlap, its bonds are weak. As a result, it is thermally unstable and rearranges to propene at 10000C via a first-order reaction: The rate constant is 9.2s-1; (a) What is the half-life of the reaction? (b) How long does it take for the concentration of cyclopropane to reach one-quarter of the initial value?
Effect of Temperature: Temperature affects rate by affecting rate constant. Arrhenius equ: k=Ae -Ea/RT K=rate const, e=base of natural logs, T=absolute temp, R= Universal gas const, Ea=activation energy (minimum energy that molecules must have to react)
Effect of Temperature: As T increases, k increases, rate increases. Ln k =ln A- Ea/R(1/T) A plot of ln k vs 1/T gives a straight line Slope=-Ea/R Y-int= ln A Ln K2/k1=-Ea/R(1/T2-1/T1)

Effects of concentration and temperature: Collision Theory: Reactant particles must collide with each other. Concs are multiplied in rate law. Ea: Energy required to activate the molecules into a state from which reactant bonds can change into product bonds. Only those collisions with enough energy to exceed Ea can lead to reaction.

Molecularity of a reaction: Elementary steps make up the reaction mechanism. An elementary step is not made up of simpler steps. Molecularity means the number of reactant particles involved in the step.
Molecularity of a reaction: In an elementary step equation coeff= order. Reaction order= molecularity A→ product Unimolecular Rate = k[A] 2A→ product Bimolecular Rate = k[A] 2 A + B→ product Bimolecular Rate = k[A][B] 2A + B→ product Termolecular Rate =k [A] 2 [B]

Problem 8 P.8. The following two reactions are proposed as elementary steps in the mechanism of an overall reaction: NO2Cl(g) → NO2(g) + Cl(g) NO2Cl(g) + Cl(g)→ NO2(g) + Cl(g) (a) Write the overall balanced equation. NO 2 Cl(g) → NO 2 (g) + Cl(g) NO 2 Cl(g) + Cl(g)→ NO 2 (g) + Cl(g)
Problem 8 (a) Write the overall balanced equation. (b)Determine the molecularity of each step. (c)Write the rate law for each step
Rate-Determining step: Also called as rate limiting step. It represents rate law for overall reaction. Slow reaction is a rate determining reaction. The elementary steps must add up to the overall equation. The elementary steps must be physically reasonable. The mechanism must correlated with the rate law.
Catalysis: Each catalyst has its own specific way of functioning. In general a catalyst lowers the energy of activation. Lowering the Ea increases the rate constant, k, and thereby increases the rate of the reaction A catalyst increases the rate of the forward AND the reverse reactions.
Catalysis: A catalyzed reaction yields the products more quickly, but does not yield more product than the uncatalyzed reaction. A catalyst lowers Ea by providing a different mechanism, for the reaction through a new, lower energy pathway
