Chemical Kinetics. Kinetics. Kinetics in chemistry is concerned with how quickly a reaction proceeds Factors that affect rate Physical state of the reactants Concentration of the reactants Temperature at which the reaction occurs The presence of a catalyst. Reaction Rates.
2N2O5(g) → 4NO2(g) + O2(g)
If the rate of decomposition of dinitrogen pentoxide at a particular instant in a reaction vessel is 4.2x10- 7 M/s, what is the rate of appearance of NO2 and O2?
r = 1.0x10- 5M/s
2NO(g) + 2H2(g) → N2(g) + 2H2O(g)
Determine the rate law for this reaction, the value of the rate constant and the rate when [NO] = 0.050M and [H2] = 0.150M
(CH3)2O(g) → CH4(g) + H2(g) + CO(g)
If the initial pressure of dimethyl ether is 135 torr, what is the partial pressure after 1420s?
Is the reaction first or second order in NO2? What is k? If the initial concentration of NO2 is 0.0500M, what is the concentration after 0.500hr?
Describe the molecularity if each step in this mechanism. Write the equation for the overall reaction. Identify any intermediates.
The proposed mechanism is
Mo(CO)6 → Mo(CO)5 + CO
Mo(CO)5 + P(CH3)3 → Mo(CO)5P(CH3)3
Is the proposed mechanism consistent with the equation for the overall reaction? Identify any intermediates.
H2(g) + Br2(g) → 2HBr(g)
Step 1: NO2(g) + NO2(g) → NO3(g) + NO(g) (slow)
Step 2: NO3(g) + CO(g) → NO2(g) + CO2(g) (fast)
Overall: NO2(g) + CO(g) → NO(g) + CO2(g)
2NO(g) + Br2(g) → 2NOBr(g) Rate = k[NO]2[Br2]
Step 1: NO(g) + NO(g) ↔ N2O2(g) (fast)
Step 2: N2O2(g) + Br2(g) → 2NOBr(g) (slow)
