  • Rate of Reactions

    RATE OF REACTIONS. The reaction rate (rate of reaction) or speed of reaction for a reactant or product in a particular reaction is intuitively defined as how fast or slow a reaction takes place. For example‚ the oxidative rusting of iron under the atmosphere is a slow reaction that can take many years‚ but the combustion of cellulose in a fire is a reaction that takes place in fractions of a second (right). Chemical kinetics is the part of physical chemistry that studies reaction rates. The concepts

  • Rates of Reaction

    Rates of Reaction Coursework Aim: To find out how different concentrations of sodium thiosulphate (Na S2 O3) affects the speed of its reaction with Hydrochloric acid (HCL). Introduction When Sodium Thiosulphate and Hydrochloric acid react they produce a cloudy precipitate. Both of the chemicals are clear solutions and they react together to form a yellow precipitate of sulphur‚ the equation for this reaction is: Na2 S2 O3 + HCL‚ H2 O + NaCL + SO2 + S Sodium Thiosulphate + Hydrochloric

[10 points] The following reaction is found to be first order in A: A −→ B + C If half of the starting quantity of A is used up after 56 seconds‚ calculate the fraction that will be used up after 6.0 minutes. 4. [15 points] The rate law for the decomposition of ozone to molecular oxygen 3 O3 (g) −→ 3 O2 (g) is rate = k [O3 ]2 . [O2 ] The mechanism for this process is k1 O3 O + O2 k−1 k 2 O + O3 −→ 2 O2 Derive a rate law from these elementary steps. Clearly

  • The Effect of Catalase Concentration on Rate of Reaction

    concentration on the reaction between Catalase and hydrogen peroxide. Introduction Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts (a substance that increases or decreases the rate of a reaction) 2. Enzymes bind to a molecule called a substrate‚ converting it into a product. Nearly all of the chemical reactions that occur in a biological cell need enzymes to make them occur. Enzymes like all catalysts lower the activation energy needed for a reaction to take place3. They dramatically speed up the rate at which

  • How the Concentration Affects the Rate of the Reaction

    investigate how the concentration of an acid affects the rate of the reaction. I have set up the experiment’s equipment as shown on figure 1. As you can see by figure 1‚ I have used the reaction between sodium thisoulphate solution and hydrochloric acid (HCL) to come up with results that will help me draw conclusions regarding the effects of the concentration of the acid. I decided to use this particular reaction due to the fact that the product of the reaction between sodium thisoulphate and hydrochloric acid

  • Reaction Rate Lab

    This lab focused on three factors affecting reaction rates‚ temperature‚ surface area‚ and concentration. Our first experiment (table 1) looked mainly into the effects of temperature on the reaction rate. To see how different temperatures would change the reaction rates we had three flasks all containing varying temperatures of water(H20). One with cold water (4°C)‚ one room temperature (21°C)‚ and one with hot water (44°C). In each flask‚ we dropped one tablet of Alka-Seltzer‚ all within 0.008 grams

  • The Rate of a Reaction: Chemistry

    The Rate of a Reaction The area of chemistry that deals with the rate or speed of chemical reactions is known a chemical kinetics. The word “kinetic” is derived from the Greek name kinitikos that means movement or motion. In the present context‚ the kinetic means the reaction rate or rate of a reaction that is defined as the change in concentration of a reactant or a product with time (M/s). Chemical reaction can be represented by the following general equation. Reactants Products It is very important
