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 10, 2008 Lecture 29: Introduction to chemical kinetics References 1. Levine, Physical Chemistry, Sections 16.1{4 Key Concepts In studying kinetics we will attempt to answer two broad questions regarding how reactions get to equilibrium (if they can): 1. Experimental: how can we determine the rate of a reaction? | how fast, what does it depend on, how can we measure 2. Theory: By what mechanism does a reaction proceed? | what do our experimental results tells us about the steps involved in a reaction, what do our experimental results mean For a general reaction: aA+bB!eE +fF we can write the rate in terms of the concentration of a species: rate = 1ad[A]dt = 1Bd[B]dt = 1ed[E]dt = 1f d[F]dt Sometimes we can obtain an empirical relationship for the rate that is a function of several variables: rate = k[A] [B] [L]...
