Answer to Prob 6, Lecture 2, p9.

2nd order in subst A; 0.5 order in subst B; overall order is 2.5

Answer to Prob 7, L2,p11.

a)Calculate the values of
(i) 1/(a-x) and (ii) ln((b.(a-x))/(a.(b-x))) for each time, and plot these quantities (vertically) against time (horizontally). Inspect the graphs to see which gave a straight line. If (i) is straight, it is second order, equal. If (ii) is straight, it is second order unequal. If both appear straight, not enough measurements have been taken.

b)Reaction is second order equal. No second reactant is given, so first, or second order equal is expected. 2k = 0.288 L/mol.s

    The concentration/time graph for a zero order reaction has which form?

    All are plots of reactant concentration (vertically) against time (horizontally).



    Answer to Prob 9, L2, p12

    693 seconds

    Answer to Prob 10, L2, p13

    Half life = 23.1 s
    at 100 s, c = 0.003 mol/L
    time to fall 0.01 to 0.002 = 53.6 s

    Answer to Prob 11, L2,p14

    i) 66.7 s
    ii) 6667 s.

    Answer to Prob 12, L2,p14.

    a) 0.0197 L/mol.s
    b) 508 s
    c) 0.039 s-1 ; 17.6 s
    d) 0.0578mol/L
    e) 546 s

    A reaction of the type

    is first order in each reactant, and starts off with [A]0 = [B]0 = 0.06 mol/L. If [A]t drops to 0.022 mol/L in 100 s, calculate 2k in L/mol.s units.

    You MUST give your answer to FOUR DECIMAL PLACES

  • 3 Using the correct rate constant, and starting with [A]0 = 0.06 mol/L, calculate the concentration of A in mol/L after 200s.

    You MUST express your answer to FOUR decimal places

  • 4

    For the same reaction, calculate the time, in seconds, for [A] to drop from 0.022 to 0.0022 mol/L

    Give your answer to the nearest whole second
