Rate changes during a reaction The rate equation Worked examples Graphical methods for determining rate Half-life Rate determining step THE RATE EQUATION Before you start it would be helpful to know how the energy changes during a chemical reaction know the basic ideas of Kinetic Theory know the importance of catalysts in industrial chemistry REVISION COLLISION THEORY Collision theory states that... particles must COLLIDE before a reaction can take place not all collisions lead to a reaction reactants must possess at least a minimum amount of energy - ACTIVATION ENERGY plus particles must approach each other in a certain relative way - the STERIC EFFECT REVISION COLLISION THEORY Collision theory states that... particles must COLLIDE before a reaction can take place not all collisions lead to a reaction reactants must possess at least a minimum amount of energy - ACTIVATION ENERGY plus particles must approach each other in a certain relative way - the STERIC EFFECT
According to collision theory, to increase the rate of reaction you therefore need... more frequent collisions increase particle speed have more particles present more successful collisions give particles more energy or lower the activation energy or REVISION INCREASING THE RATE The following methods may be used to increase the rate of a chemical reaction INCREASE THE SURFACE AREA OF SOLIDS INCREASE TEMPERATURE SHINE LIGHT ADD A CATALYST INCREASE THE PRESSURE OF ANY GASES INCREASE THE CONCENTRATION OF REACTANTS REVISION RATE CHANGE DURING A REACTION Reactions are fastest at the start and get slower as the reactants concentration drops. In a reaction such as A + 2B > C the concentrations might change as shown Reactants (A and B)
Product (C) Concentration increases with time the steeper the curve the faster the rate of the reaction reactions start off quickly because of the greater likelihood of collisions reactions slow down with time as there are fewer reactants to collide CONCENTRATION Concentration decreases with time C A B TIME MEASURING THE RATE Experimental Investigation the variation in concentration of a reactant or product is followed with time the method depends on the reaction type and the properties of reactants/products e.g. Extracting a sample from the reaction mixture and analysing it by titration. - this is often used if an acid is one of the reactants or products Using a colorimeter or UV / visible spectrophotometer. Measuring the volume of gas evolved. Measuring the change in conductivity.
More details of these and other methods can be found in suitable text-books. MEASURING THE RATE RATE How much concentration changes with time. It is the equivalent of velocity. CONCENTRATION THE SLOPE OF THE GRADIENT OF THE CURVE GETS LESS AS THE REACTION SLOWS DOWN WITH TIME y x gradient = y x TIME the rate of change of concentration is found from the slope (gradient) of the curve the slope at the start of the reaction will give the INITIAL RATE the slope gets less (showing the rate is slowing down) as the reaction proceeds THE RATE EQUATION Format r k [] links the rate of reaction to the concentration of reactants it can only be found by doing actual experiments
it cannot be found by just looking at the equation the equation... A + B > C + D might have a rate equation like this r = k [A] [B]2 rate of reaction rate constant concentration units of units units of conc. / time usually mol dm-3 s-1 depend on the rate equation mol dm-3 Interpretation The above rate equation tells you that the rate of reaction is... proportional to the concentration of reactant A doubling [A] doubles rate proportional to the square of the concentration of B doubling [B] quadruples (22) rate ORDER OF REACTION Order tells you how much the concentration of a reactant affects the rate Individual order The power to which a concentration is raised in the rate equation Overall order
The sum of all the individual orders in the rate equation. ORDER OF REACTION Order tells you how much the concentration of a reactant affects the rate Individual order The power to which a concentration is raised in the rate equation Overall order The sum of all the individual orders in the rate equation. Value(s) e.g. in the rate equation and the order with respect to A is the order with respect to B is the overall order is r = k [A] [B]2 1 2 3 1st Order 2nd Order 3rd Order
need not be whole numbers can be zero if the rate is unaffected by how much of a substance is present ORDER OF REACTION Order tells you how much the concentration of a reactant affects the rate Individual order The power to which a concentration is raised in the rate equation Overall order The sum of all the individual orders in the rate equation. Value(s) e.g. in the rate equation and the order with respect to A is the order with respect to B is the overall order is r = k [A] [B]2 1 2 3 1st Order 2nd Order 3rd Order
need not be whole numbers can be zero if the rate is unaffected by how much of a substance is present NOTES The rate equation is derived from experimental evidence not by looking at an equation. Species appearing in the stoichiometric equation sometimes arent in the rate equation. Substances not in the stoichiometric equation can appear in the rate equation - CATALYSTS THE RATE EQUATION Experimental determination of order Method 1 Plot a concentration / time graph and calculate the rate (gradient) at points on the curve Plot another graph of the rate (y axis) versus the concentration at that point (x axis) If it gives a straight line, the rate is directly proportional to concentration - 1st ORDER. If the plot is a curve then it must have another order. Try plotting rate v. (conc.)2. A straight line would mean 2nd ORDER. This method is based on trial and error.

If the plot is a curve then it must have another order. Try plotting rate v. (conc.)2. A straight line would mean 2nd ORDER. This method is based on trial and error. Method 2 - The initial rates method. Do a series of experiments (at the same temperature) at different concentrations of a reactant but keeping all others constant. Plot a series of concentration / time graphs and calculate the initial rate (slope of curve at start) for each reaction. From the results calculate the relationship between concentration and rate and hence deduce the rate equation. To find order directly, logarithmic plots are required. THE RATE CONSTANT (k)
Units The units of k depend on the overall order of reaction. e.g. if the rate equation is... rate = k [A]2 the units of k will be dm3 mol-1 sec-1 Divide the rate by as many concentrations as appear in the rate equation. Overall Order 0 units of k mol dm-3 sec-1 1 sec-1 example in the rate equation r = k [A] in the rate equation r = k [A] [B]2 2 dm3 mol-1 sec-1 3 dm6 mol-2 sec-1 k will have units of sec-1 k will have units of dm6 mol-2 sec-1 RATE EQUATION - SAMPLE CALCULATION

GRAPHICAL DETERMINATION OF RATE The variation in rate can be investigated by measuring the change in concentration of one of the reactants or products, plotting a graph and then finding the gradients of the curve at different concentrations. In the reaction A(aq) + B(aq) > C(aq) + D(aq) the concentration of B was measured every 200 minutes. The reaction is obviously very slow! RATE CALCULATION The rate of reaction at any moment can be found from the gradient of the tangent at that point. The steeper the gradient, the faster the rate of reaction Place a rule on the outside of the curve and draw a line as shown on the graph. y x gradient = y / x GRAPHICAL DETERMINATION OF RATE The variation in rate can be investigated by measuring the change in concentration of one reactants or product, plotting a graph and then finding the gradients of tangents to the curve at different concentrations. concentration =

x gradient = y / x GRAPHICAL DETERMINATION OF RATE The variation in rate can be investigated by measuring the change in concentration of one of the reactants or products, plotting a graph and then finding the gradients of the curve at different concentrations. The gradients of tangents at several other concentrations are calculated. Notice how the gradient gets less as the reaction proceeds, showing that the reaction is slowing down. The tangent at the start of the reaction is used to calculate the initial rate of the reaction. RATE CALCULATION The rate of reaction at any moment can be found from the gradient of the tangent at that point. The steeper the gradient, the faster the rate of reaction Place a rule on the outside of the curve and draw a line as shown on the graph. y x gradient = y / x
FIRST ORDER REACTIONS AND HALF LIFE One characteristic of a FIRST ORDER REACTION is that it is similar to radioactive decay. It has a half-life that is independent of the concentration.

Many reactions consist of a series of separate stages. Each step has its own rate and rate constant. The overall rate of a multi-step process is governed by the slowest step (like a production line where overall output can be held up by a slow worker). This step is known as the RATE DETERMINING STEP. If there is more than one step, the rate equation may not contain all the reactants in its format. RATE DETERMINING STEP THE REACTION BETWEEN PROPANONE AND IODINE Iodine and propanone react in the presence of acid CH3COCH3 + I2 The rate equation is... r = k [CH3COCH3] [H+] Why do H+ ions appear in the rate equation?

The rate determining step doesnt involve I2 The slowest step of any multi-step reaction is known as the rate determining step and it is the species involved in this step that are found in the overall rate equation. Catalysts appear in the rate equation because they affect the rate but they do not appear in the stoichiometric equation because they remain chemically unchanged RATE DETERMINING STEP HYDROLYSIS OF HALOALKANES Haloalkanes (general formula RX) are hydrolysed by hydroxide ion to give alcohols. RX + OH- With many haloalkanes the rate equation is... r = k [RX][OH-] This is because both the RX and OH- must collide for a reaction to take place in ONE STEP ROH + X- SECOND ORDER RATE DETERMINING STEP HYDROLYSIS OF HALOALKANES
Haloalkanes (general formula RX) are hydrolysed by hydroxide ion to give alcohols. RX + OH- ROH + X- With many haloalkanes the rate equation is... r = k [RX][OH-] This is because both the RX and OH- must collide for a reaction to take place in ONE STEP SECOND ORDER but with others it only depends on [RX]... FIRST ORDER The reaction has taken place in TWO STEPS... - the first involves breaking an R-X bond - the second step involves the two ions joining r = k [RX] i) ii) RX R + + XR+ + OHROH
Slow Fast The first step is slower as it involves bond breaking and energy has to be put in. The first order mechanism is favoured by tertiary haloalkanes because the hydroxide ion is hindered in its approach by alkyl groups if the mechanism involves the hydroxide ion and haloalkane colliding. RATE DETERMINING STEP The reaction H2O2 + 2H3O+ + 2I Step 1 H2O2 + I Step 2 IO + H3O+ Step 3 HIO + H3O+ + I I2 + 4H2O IO + H2O HIO + takes place in 3 steps SLOW H2O
FAST I2 + 2H2O FAST The rate determining step is STEP 1 as it is the slowest RATE DETERMINING STEP The reaction H2O2 + 2H3O+ + 2I Step 1 H2O2 + I Step 2 IO + H3O+ Step 3 HIO + H3O+ + I I2 + 4H2O IO + H2O HIO + takes place in 3 steps SLOW
H2O FAST I2 + 2H2O FAST The rate determining step is STEP 1 as it is the slowest The reaction 2N2O5 4NO2 + O2 takes place in 3 steps Step 1 N2O5 NO2 + NO3 Step 2 NO2 + NO3 NO + NO2 + O2 FAST Step 3
NO + 2NO2 FAST NO3 The rate determining step is STEP 1 SLOW from another Step 1 rate = k [N2O5] OTHER TOPICS Autocatalysis A small number of reactions appear to speed up, rather than slow down, for a time. This is because one of the products is acting as a catalyst and as more product is formed the reaction gets faster. One of the best known examples is the catalytic properties of Mn2+(aq) on the decomposition of MnO4(aq). You will notice it in a titration of KMnO4 with either hydrogen peroxide or ethanedioic (oxalic) acid. Molecularity e.g. The number of individual particles of the reacting species taking part in the rate determining step of a reaction A + 2B A
C+D 2B molecularity is 3 - one A and two Bs need to collide however has a molecularity of 1 - only one A is involved THE RATE EQUATION The End 2009 JONATHAN HOPTON & KNOCKHARDY PUBLISHING
