The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey Chemistry Program, School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics PO Box 195, Pomoma, NJ CHEM 3410: Physical Chemistry I | Fall 2008 November 17, 2008 Lecture 32: More on reaction mechanisms & steady state References 1. Levine, Physical Chemistry, Chapter 16 Key Concepts In consecutive or series reactions, a reactant, A forms an intermediate B, which then forms the product C. { The solution for [A](t) was arrived at using the rst order kinetics we discussed previously. The rate at which [A] decreases depends on the rate constant of the A!B reaction, k1. { The time dependence of [B] can be obtained by solving a di erential equation similar to the case for parallel reactions. [C] can be found by evoking mass conservation. { The rate limiting step will determine the observed concentration behavior for A, B, and C. It is determined by the relative values of k1 and k2. In a reversible reaction, we can arrive at a relationship between rate constants and the...
