Suppose the concentrations for NH 4 + and NO 2 - are 0.15 M and 0.20 M, respectively Since R = k[NH 4 + ] 1 [NO 2 ] 1 where k = 2.7 x 10 -4 1/M - s at 25 C then R = 2.7 x 10 -4 1/M - s [0.15 M] [0.20 M] R = 8.1 x 10 -6 M/s

Using Rate Law Equations to Determine Change in Concentration Over Time The first order rate constant for the decomposition of a certain insecticide in water at 12 C° is 1.45 yr 1-. A quantity of insecticide is washed into a lake in June leading to a concentration of 5.0 x 10 -7 g/cm 3. Assume that the effective temperature of the lake is 12 C°. (a)What is the concentration of the insecticide in June of the following year? (b) How long will it take for the concentration of the insecticide to drop to 3.0 x 10 -7 g/cm 3 ? R = - [A] = k[A] t ln [A] t = - k t + ln [A] 0 ln [A] t = - (1.45 yr. -1 )(1.00 yr.) + ln( 5.0 x 10 -7 g/cm 3 ) ln [A] t = - 15.96, [A] t = e -15.96 [A] t = 1.2 x 10 -7 g/cm 3

Using Rate Law Equations to Determine the Half-Life of a Reaction Lets begin with ln[A] t - ln[A] 0 = ln [A] t [ A] 0 = - kt ln [A] t [A] 0 = - kt, let [A] t = ½ [A] 0 given ln ½ [A] 0 [A] 0 = - kt, then and ln ½ = -kt ½ t ½ = -ln ½ = 0.693 k k

Using Rate Law Equations to Determine the Half-Life of a Reaction The concentration of an insecticide accidentally spilled into a lake was measured at 1.2 x 10 -7 g/cm 3. Records from the initial accident show that the concentration of the insecticide was 5.0 x 10 -7 g/cm 3. Calculate the 1/2 life of the insecticide. ln 1.2 x 10 -7 g/cm 3 5.0 x 10 -7 g/cm 3 = - k (1.00 yr.) k = 1.43 yr -1 t ½ = 0.693 = 0.484 yr. 1.43 yr -1

Examining the Relationship Between the Rate Constant and Temperature

Why does Temperature Have an Effect on Rate?..its because of Collision Theory

...And What Do the Mathematicians Have to Say About Collision Theory? k = A e -E a /RT

ln k 1 = -E a /RT 1 + ln A e ln k 2 = -E a /RT 2 + ln A e lnk 1 - ln k 2 = (-E a /RT 1 + ln A e ) - (E a /RT 2 + ln A e ) ln k1k1 k2k2 = EaEa R 1 T2T2 1 T1T1 - Rewriting the Arrhenius Equation

Reaction Mechanisms A Reaction Mechanism is the process which describes in great detail the order in which bonds are broken and reformed, changes in orientation and the energies involved during those rebondings, and changes in orientations NO(g) + O 3 (g) NO 2 (g) + O 2 (g) elementary reaction A single reaction event is called an elementary reaction NO 2 (g) + CO(g) NO(g) + CO 2 (g) elementary reaction, While this reaction looks like an elementary reaction, it actually takes place in a series of steps NO 2 (g) +NO 2 (g) NO 3 (g) + NO(g) NO 3 (g) + CO(g) NO 2 (g) + CO 2 (g) NO 2 (g) + CO(g) NO(g) + CO 2 (g)

Keep in mind, however, that one cannot include an intermediate in the rate determining step. We can substitute for NOBr 2 using the previous equation NO(g) and Br 2 (g) which are not intermediates rate = k [NO] 2 [Br 2 ]

Prove that the following mechanism is consistent with R = k[NO] 2 [Br 2 ], the rate law which was derived experimentally: NO(g) +NO(g) N 2 O 2 (g) N 2 O 2 (g) + Br 2 (g) 2NOBr(g) 2NO(g) + Br 2 (g) 2NOBr(g)
