CHAPTER 15 CHEMICAL KINETICS

Reaction Rates 10.

The reaction rate is defined as the change in concentration of a reactant or product per unit time. Consider the general reaction: aA products where rate =

d[A] dt

If we graph [A] vs. t, it would usually look like the solid line in the following plot.

a

[A]

b c 0

time

An instantaneous rate is the slope of a tangent line to the graph of [A] vs. t. We can determine the instantaneous rate at any time during the reaction. On the plot, tangent lines at t 0 and t = t1 are drawn. The slope of these tangent lines would be the instantaneous rates at t 0 and t = t1. We call the instantaneous rate at t 0 the initial rate. The average rate is measured over a period of time. For example, the slope of the dashed line connecting points a and c is the average rate of the reaction over the entire length of time 0 to t2 (average rate = Δ[A]/Δt). An average rate is determined over some time period, whereas an instantaneous rate is determined at one specific time. The rate that is largest is generally the initial rate. At t 0, the slope of the tangent line is greatest, which means the rate is largest at t 0. The initial rate is used by convention so that the rate of reaction only depends on the forward reaction; at t 0, the reverse reaction is insignificant because no products are present yet.

Using the coefficients in the balanced equation to relate the rates:

d[ NH3 ] d[H 2 ] d[ N 2 ] d[ N 2 ] 3 and 2 dt dt dt dt So :

d[ NH3 ] 1 d[H 2 ] 1 d[ NH3 ] 2 d[H 2 ] or 3 dt 2 dt dt 3 dt

Ammonia is produced at a rate equal to 2/3 of the rate of consumption of hydrogen. 12.

The coefficients in the balanced reaction relate the rate of disappearance of reactants to the rate of production of products. From the balanced reaction, the rate of production of P 4 will be 1/4 the rate of disappearance of PH3, and the rate of production of H2 will be 6/4 the rate of disappearance of PH3. By convention, all rates are given as positive values. Rate

Δ[PH3 ] (0.0048 mol/ 2.0 L) = 2.4 × 103 mol L1 s1 Δt s

Δ[P4 ] 1 Δ[PH3 ] = 2.4 × 103/4 = 6.0 × 104 mol L1 s1 Δt 4 Δt Δ[H 2 ] 6 Δ[PH3 ] = 6(2.4 × 103)/4 = 3.6 × 103 mol L1 s1 Δt 4 Δt 13.

0.0120/0.0080 = 1.5; reactant B is used up 1.5 times faster than reactant A. This corresponds to a 3 to 2 mole ratio between B and A in the balanced equation. 0.0160/0.0080 = 2; product C is produced twice as fast as reactant A is used up. So the coefficient for C is twice the coefficient for A. A possible balanced equation is 2A + 3B 4C.

Rate Laws from Experimental Data: Initial Rates Method 17.

a. In the first two experiments, [NO] is held constant and [Cl2] is doubled. The rate also doubled. Thus the reaction is first order with respect to Cl2. Or mathematically: Rate = k[NO]x[Cl2]y 0.36 k (0.10) x (0.20) y (0.20) y , 2.0 = 2.0y, y = 1 x y y 0.18 k (0.10) (0.10) (0.10)

We can get the dependence on NO from the second and third experiments. Here, as the NO concentration doubles (Cl2 concentration is constant), the rate increases by a factor of four. Thus, the reaction is second order with respect to NO. Or mathematically: 1.45 k (0.20) x (0.20) (0.20) x , 4.0 = 2.0x, x = 2; so, Rate = k[NO]2[Cl2]. 0.36 k (0.10) x (0.20) (0.10) x

Try to examine experiments where only one concentration changes at a time. The more variables that change, the harder it is to determine the orders. Also, these types of problems can usually be solved by inspection. In general, we will solve using a mathematical approach, but keep in mind that you probably can solve for the orders by simple inspection of the data. b. The rate constant k can be determined from the experiments. From experiment 1: 2

Rate = k[NO]x[O2]y; Comparing the first two experiments, [O2] is unchanged, [NO] is tripled, and the rate increases by a factor of nine. Therefore, the reaction is second order in NO (3 2 = 9). The order of O2 is more difficult to determine. Comparing the second and third experiments: 3.13 1017 k (2.50 1018 ) 2 (2.50 1018 ) y 1.80 1017 k (3.00 1018 ) 2 (1.00 1018 ) y 1.74 = 0.694(2.50)y, 2.51 = 2.50y, y = 1 Rate = k[NO]2[O2]; from experiment 1: 2.00 × 1016 molecules cm3 s1 = k(1.00 × 1018 molecules/cm3)2 (1.00 × 1018 molecules/cm3)

a. Rate = k[Hb]x[CO]y Comparing the first two experiments, [CO] is unchanged, [Hb] doubles, and the rate doubles. Therefore, x = 1, and the reaction is first order in Hb. Comparing the second and third experiments, [Hb] is unchanged, [CO] triples, and the rate triples. Therefore, y = 1 and the reaction is first order in CO. b. Rate = k[Hb][CO] c. From the first experiment: 0.619 µmol L1 s1 = k(2.21 µmol/L)(1.00 µmol/L), k = 0.280 L µmol1 s1 The second and third experiments give similar k values, so kmean = 0.280 L µmol1 s1. d.

For a first-order reaction, if the first half-life equals 20. s, the second half-life will also be 20. s because the half-life for a first-order reaction is concentration-independent. The second half-life for a zero-order reaction will be 1/2(20.) = 10. s. This is because the half-life for a zero-order reaction has a direct relationship with concentration (as the concentration decreases by a factor of 2, the half-life decreases by a factor of 2). Because a second-order reaction has an inverse relationship between t1/2 and [A]0, the second half-life will be 40. s (twice the first half-life value).

CHAPTER 15

CHEMICAL KINETICS

a. Because the 1/[A] versus time plot was linear, the reaction is second order in A. The slope of the 1/[A] versus time plot equals the rate constant k. Therefore, the rate law, the integrated rate law, and the rate constant value are: Rate = k[A]2;

Note: We could have used the integrated rate law to solve for t1/2, where [A] = (2.80 × 103 /2) mol/L. c. Because the half-life for a second-order reaction depends on concentration, we must use the integrated rate law to solve.

a. Because the ln[A] versus time plot was linear, the reaction is first order in A. The slope of the ln[A] versus time plot equals k. Therefore, the rate law, the integrated rate law, and the rate constant value are: Rate = k[A]; ln[A] = kt + ln[A]0; k = 2.97 × 102 min1 b. The half-life expression for a first order rate law is: t1/2 =

c. 2.50 × 103 M is 1/8 of the original amount of A present initially, so the reaction is 87.5% complete. When a first-order reaction is 87.5% complete (or 12.5% remains), then the reaction has gone through 3 half-lives: 100% 50.0% 25.0% 12.5%; t = 3 × t1/2 = 3 × 23.3 min = 69.9 min t1/2 t1/2 t1/2 Or we can use the integrated rate law: 2.50 103 M [ A] 2 1 kt, ln ln 2.00 102 M = (2.97 × 10 min )t [ A ] 0

a. Because the [C2H5OH] versus time plot was linear, the reaction is zero order in C2H5OH. The slope of the [C2H5OH] versus time plot equals -k. Therefore, the rate law, the integrated rate law, and the rate constant value are: Rate = k[C2H5OH]0 = k; [C2H5OH] = kt + [C2H5OH]0; k = 4.00 × 105 mol L1 s1 b. The half-life expression for a zero-order reaction is t1/2 = [A]0/2k. t1/2 =

Note: We could have used the integrated rate law to solve for t1/2, where [C2H5OH] = (1.25 × 102/2) mol/L. c. [C2H5OH] = kt + [C2H5OH]0 , 0 mol/L = (4.00 × 105 mol L1 s1)t + 1.25 × 102 mol/L t= 31.

1.25 102 mol/ L = 313 s 4.00 105 mol L1 s 1

The first assumption to make is that the reaction is first order. For a first order reaction, a graph of ln[H2O2] versus time will yield a straight line. If this plot is not linear, then the reaction is not first order, and we make another assumption. Time (s)

CHAPTER 15

CHEMICAL KINETICS

The plot of ln[H2O2] versus time is linear. Thus the reaction is first order. The differential d[H 2 O 2 ] rate law and integrated rate law are Rate = = k[H2O2] and ln[H2O2] = kt + dt ln[H2O2]0. We determine the rate constant k by determining the slope of the ln[H2O2] versus time plot (slope = k). Using two points on the curve gives: slope = k =

Δy 0 (3.00) = 8.3 × 104 s1, k = 8.3 × 104 s1 Δx 0 3600.

To determine [H2O2] at 4000. s, use the integrated rate law, where [H2O2]0 = 1.00 M.

[H 2 O 2 ] = kt ln[H2O2] = kt + ln[H2O2]0 or ln [H 2 O 2 ]0

[H O ] ln 2 2 = 8.3 × 104 s1 × 4000. s, ln[H2O2] = 3.3, [H2O2] = e3.3 = 0.037 M 1.00 32.

The first assumption to make is that the reaction is first order. For a first-order reaction, a graph of ln[C4H6] versus t should yield a straight line. If this isn't linear, then try the second order plot of 1/[C4H6] versus t. The data and the plots follow: Time

The natural log plot is not linear, so the reaction is not first order. Because the second order plot of 1/[C4H6] versus t is linear, we can conclude that the reaction is second order in butadiene. The differential rate law is:

CHAPTER 15

623

Rate = k[C4H6]2 For a second-order reaction, the integrated rate law is

1 1 = kt + . [C 4 H 6 ]0 [C 4 H 6 ]

The slope of the straight line equals the value of the rate constant. Using the points on the line at 1000. and 6000. s: k = slope = 33.

From the data, the pressure of C2H5OH decreases at a constant rate of 13 torr for every 100. s. Since the rate of disappearance of C2H5OH is not dependent on concentration, the reaction is zero order in C2H5OH. k=

The rate law and integrated rate law are:

a. Because the 1/[A] versus time plot is linear with a positive slope, the reaction is second order with respect to A. The y intercept in the plot will equal 1/[A]0. Extending the plot, the y intercept will be about 10, so 1/10 = 0.1 M = [A]0. b. The slope of the 1/[A] versus time plot will equal k. Slope = k =

Because the graph is linear, we can conclude the reaction is first order with respect to O. b. The overall rate law is: Rate = k[NO2][O] Because NO2 was in excess, its concentration is constant. Thus for this experiment, the rate law is Rate: k[O], where k = k[NO2]. In a typical first-order plot, the slope equals k. For this experiment, the slope equals k = k[NO2]. From the graph: slope =

19.34 22.23 = 1.0 × 102 s1, k = slope = 1.0 × 102 s1 3 (30. 10 0) s

To determine k, the actual rate constant: k = k[NO2], 1.0 × 102 s1 = k(1.0 × 1013 molecules/cm3) k = 1.0 × 1011 cm3 molecules1 s1 37.

a. We check for first-order dependence by graphing ln[concentration] versus time for each set of data. The rate dependence on NO is determined from the first set of data since the ozone concentration is relatively large compared to the NO concentration, so it is effectively constant.

c. For NO experiment, Rate = k[NO] and k = (slope from graph of ln[NO] versus t). k = slope =

18.41 20.21 = 1.8 s1 (1000. 0) 103 s

For ozone experiment, Rate = k[O3] and k = (slope from ln[O3] versus t). k = slope =

(21.95 23.03) = 3.6 s1 (300. 0) 103 s

d. From NO experiment, Rate = k[NO][O3] = k[NO] where k = k[O3]. k = 1.8 s1 = k(1.0 × 1014 molecules/cm3), k = 1.8 × 1014 cm3 molecules1 s1 We can check this from the ozone data. Rate = k[O3] = k[NO][O3], where k = k[NO]. k = 3.6 s1 = k(2.0 × 1014 molecules/cm3), k = 1.8 × 1014 cm3 molecules1 s1 Both values of k agree. 38.

This problem differs in two ways from previous problems: 1. A product is measured instead of a reactant. 2. Only the volume of a gas is given and not the concentration. We can find the initial concentration of C6H5N2Cl from the amount of N2 evolved after infinite time when all the C6H5N2Cl has decomposed (assuming the reaction goes to completion). n=

PV 1.00 atm (58.3 103 L) = 2.20 × 103 mol N2 0.08206L atm RT 323 K K mol

Because each mole of C6H5N2Cl that decomposes produces one mole of N2, the initial concentration (t = 0) of C6H5N2Cl was: 2.20 103 mol = 0.0550 M 40.0 103 L

We can similarly calculate the moles of N2 evolved at each point of the experiment, subtract that from 2.20 × 103 mol to get the moles of C6H5N2Cl remaining, and then calculate [C6H5N2Cl] at each time. We would then use these results to make the appropriate graph to determine the order of the reaction. Because the rate constant is related to the slope of the straight line, we would favor this approach to get a value for the rate constant. There is a simpler way to check for the order of the reaction that saves doing a lot of math. The quantity (V Vt ), where V = 58.3 mL N2 evolved and Vt = mL of N2 evolved at time t, will be proportional to the moles of C6H5N2Cl remaining; (V Vt ) will also be

628

CHAPTER 15

CHEMICAL KINETICS

proportional to the concentration of C6H5N2Cl. Thus we can get the same information by using (V Vt ) as our measure of [C6H5N2Cl]. If the reaction is first order, a graph of ln(V Vt ) versus t would be linear. The data for such a graph are: t (s)

We can see from the graph that this plot is linear, so the reaction is first order. The differential rate law is d[C6H5N2Cl]/dt = Rate = k[C6H5N2Cl], and the integrated rate law is ln[C6H5N2Cl] = kt + ln[C6H5N2Cl]0. From separate data, k was determined to be 6.9 × 102 s1. 39.

Because [V]0 > > [AV]0, the concentration of V is essentially constant in this experiment. We have a pseudo-first-order reaction in AV: Rate = k[AV][V] = k[AV], where k = k[V]0 The slope of the ln[AV] versus time plot is equal to k. k = slope = 0.32 s1; k

Comparing experiments 1 and 2, as the concentration of AB is doubled, the initial rate increases by a factor of 4. The reaction is second order in AB.

Box a has 8 NO2 molecules. Box b has 4 NO2 molecules, and box c has 2 NO2 molecules. Box b represents what is present after the first half-life of the reaction, and box c represents what is present after the second half-life. a. For first order kinetics, t1/2 = 0.693/k; the half-life for a first order reaction is concentration independent. Therefore, the time for box c, the time it takes to go through two half-lives, will be 10 + 10 = 20 minutes. b. For second order kinetics, t1/2 = 1/k[A]0; the half-life for a second order reaction is inversely proportional to the initial concentration. So if the first half-life is 10 minutes, the second half-life will be 20 minutes. For a second order reaction, the time for box c will be 10 + 20 = 30 minutes. c. For zero order kinetics, t1/2 = [A]0/2k; the half-life for a zero order reaction is directly related to the initial concentration. So if this reaction was zero order, then the second half-life would decrease from 10 min to 5 min. The time for box c will be 10 + 5 = 15 minutes if the reaction is zero order.

43.

For a first-order reaction, the integrated rate law is ln([A]/[A]0) = kt. Solving for k:

0.250 mol/ L = k × 120. s, k = 0.0116 s1 ln 1.00 mol/ L

0.350 mol/ L = 0.0116 s1 × t, t = 150. s ln 2.00 mol/ L 44.

Successive half-lives increase in time for a second-order reaction. Therefore, assume reaction is second order in A. t1/2 =

a. The integrated rate law for a second order reaction is 1/[A] = kt + 1/[A]0, and the halflife expression is t1/2 = 1/k[A]0. We could use either to solve for t1/2. Using the integrated rate law:

a. When a reaction is 75.0% complete (25.0% of reactant remains), this represents two halflives (100% → 50%→ 25%). The first-order half-life expression is t1/2 = (ln 2)/k. Because there is no concentration dependence for a first-order half-life, 320. s = two halflives, t1/2 = 320./2 = 160. s. This is both the first half-life, the second half-life, etc. b. t1/2 =

Because [B]0 >> [A]0, the B concentration is essentially constant during this experiment, so rate = k[A] where k = k[B]2. For this experiment, the reaction is a pseudo-first-order reaction in A.

The reaction rate is defined as the change in concentration of a reactant or product per unit time. Consider the general reaction: aA products where rate =

d[A] dt

If we graph [A] vs. t, it would usually look like the solid line in the following plot.

time

An instantaneous rate is the slope of a tangent line to the graph of [A] vs. t. We can determine the instantaneous rate at any time during the reaction. On the plot, tangent lines at t 0 and t = t1 are drawn. The slope of these tangent lines would be the instantaneous rates at t 0 and t = t1. We call the instantaneous rate at t 0 the initial rate. The average rate is measured over a period of time. For example, the slope of the dashed line connecting points a and c is the average rate of the reaction over the entire length of time 0 to t2 (average rate = Δ[A]/Δt). An average rate is determined over some time period, whereas an instantaneous rate is determined at one specific time. The rate that is largest is generally the initial rate. At t 0, the slope of the tangent line is greatest, which means the rate is largest at t 0. The initial rate is used by convention so that the rate of reaction only depends on the forward reaction; at t 0, the reverse reaction is insignificant because no products are present yet.

Ammonia is produced at a rate equal to 2/3 of the rate of consumption of hydrogen. 12.

The coefficients in the balanced reaction relate the rate of disappearance of reactants to the rate of production of products. From the balanced reaction, the rate of production of P 4 will be 1/4 the rate of disappearance of PH3, and the rate of production of H2 will be 6/4 the rate of disappearance of PH3. By convention, all rates are given as positive values. Rate

Δ[PH3 ] (0.0048 mol/ 2.0 L) = 2.4 × 103 mol L1 s1 Δt s

Δ[P4 ] 1 Δ[PH3 ] = 2.4 × 103/4 = 6.0 × 104 mol L1 s1 Δt 4 Δt Δ[H 2 ] 6 Δ[PH3 ] = 6(2.4 × 103)/4 = 3.6 × 103 mol L1 s1 Δt 4 Δt 13.

0.0120/0.0080 = 1.5; reactant B is used up 1.5 times faster than reactant A. This corresponds to a 3 to 2 mole ratio between B and A in the balanced equation. 0.0160/0.0080 = 2; product C is produced twice as fast as reactant A is used up. So the coefficient for C is twice the coefficient for A. A possible balanced equation is 2A + 3B 4C.

Rate Laws from Experimental Data: Initial Rates Method 17.

a. In the first two experiments, [NO] is held constant and [Cl2] is doubled. The rate also doubled. Thus the reaction is first order with respect to Cl2. Or mathematically: Rate = k[NO]x[Cl2]y 0.36 k (0.10) x (0.20) y (0.20) y , 2.0 = 2.0y, y = 1 x y y 0.18 k (0.10) (0.10) (0.10)

We can get the dependence on NO from the second and third experiments. Here, as the NO concentration doubles (Cl2 concentration is constant), the rate increases by a factor of four. Thus, the reaction is second order with respect to NO. Or mathematically: 1.45 k (0.20) x (0.20) (0.20) x , 4.0 = 2.0x, x = 2; so, Rate = k[NO]2[Cl2]. 0.36 k (0.10) x (0.20) (0.10) x

Try to examine experiments where only one concentration changes at a time. The more variables that change, the harder it is to determine the orders. Also, these types of problems can usually be solved by inspection. In general, we will solve using a mathematical approach, but keep in mind that you probably can solve for the orders by simple inspection of the data. b. The rate constant k can be determined from the experiments. From experiment 1: 2

Rate = k[NO]x[O2]y; Comparing the first two experiments, [O2] is unchanged, [NO] is tripled, and the rate increases by a factor of nine. Therefore, the reaction is second order in NO (3 2 = 9). The order of O2 is more difficult to determine.

For a first-order reaction, if the first half-life equals 20. s, the second half-life will also be 20. s because the half-life for a first-order reaction is concentration-independent. The second half-life for a zero-order reaction will be 1/2(20.) = 10. s. This is because the half-life for a zero-order reaction has a direct relationship with concentration (as the concentration decreases by a factor of 2, the half-life decreases by a factor of 2). Because a second-order reaction has an inverse relationship between t1/2 and [A]0, the second half-life will be 40. s (twice the first half-life value).

a. Because the 1/[A] versus time plot was linear, the reaction is second order in A. The slope of the 1/[A] versus time plot equals the rate constant k. Therefore, the rate law, the integrated rate law, and the rate constant value are: Rate = k[A]2;

a. Because the ln[A] versus time plot was linear, the reaction is first order in A. The slope of the ln[A] versus time plot equals k. Therefore, the rate law, the integrated rate law, and the rate constant value are: Rate = k[A]; ln[A] = kt + ln[A]0; k = 2.97 × 102 min1 b.

a. Because the [C2H5OH] versus time plot was linear, the reaction is zero order in C2H5OH. The slope of the [C2H5OH] versus time plot equals -k. Therefore, the rate law, the integrated rate law, and the rate constant value are: Rate = k[C2H5OH]0 = k; [C2H5OH] = kt + [C2H5OH]0; k = 4.00 × 105 mol L1 s1 b.

The first assumption to make is that the reaction is first order. For a first order reaction, a graph of ln[H2O2] versus time will yield a straight line. If this plot is not linear, then the reaction is not first order, and we make another assumption. Time (s)

CHAPTER 15

CHEMICAL KINETICS

The plot of ln[H2O2] versus time is linear. Thus the reaction is first order. The differential d[H 2 O 2 ] rate law and integrated rate law are Rate = = k[H2O2] and ln[H2O2] = kt + dt ln[H2O2]0. We determine the rate constant k by determining the slope of the ln[H2O2] versus time plot (slope = k). Using two points on the curve gives: slope = k =

Δy 0 (3.00) = 8.3 × 104 s1, k = 8.3 × 104 s1 Δx 0 3600.

To determine [H2O2] at 4000. s, use the integrated rate law, where [H2O2]0 = 1.00 M.

[H 2 O 2 ] = kt ln[H2O2] = kt + ln[H2O2]0 or ln [H 2 O 2 ]0

[H O ] ln 2 2 = 8.3 × 104 s1 × 4000. s, ln[H2O2] = 3.3, [H2O2] = e3.3 = 0.037 M 1.00 32.

The first assumption to make is that the reaction is first order. For a first-order reaction, a graph of ln[C4H6] versus t should yield a straight line. If this isn't linear, then try the second order plot of 1/[C4H6] versus t. The data and the plots follow: Time

The natural log plot is not linear, so the reaction is not first order. Because the second order plot of 1/[C4H6] versus t is linear, we can conclude that the reaction is second order in butadiene. The differential rate law is:

From the data, the pressure of C2H5OH decreases at a constant rate of 13 torr for every 100. s. Since the rate of disappearance of C2H5OH is not dependent on concentration, the reaction is zero order in C2H5OH. k=

a. Because the 1/[A] versus time plot is linear with a positive slope, the reaction is second order with respect to A. The y intercept in the plot will equal 1/[A]0. Extending the plot, the y intercept will be about 10, so 1/10 = 0.1 M = [A]0. b. The slope of the 1/[A] versus time plot will equal k. Slope = k =

The plot of 1/[NO2] versus time is linear. The reaction is second order in NO2. The differential rate law and integrated rate law are Rate = k[NO2]2 and

Because the graph is linear, we can conclude the reaction is first order with respect to O. b. The overall rate law is: Rate = k[NO2][O] Because NO2 was in excess, its concentration is constant. Thus for this experiment, the rate law is Rate: k[O], where k = k[NO2]. In a typical first-order plot, the slope equals k. For this experiment, the slope equals k = k[NO2]. From the graph: slope =

19.34 22.23 = 1.0 × 102 s1, k = slope = 1.0 × 102 s1 3 (30. 10 0) s

To determine k, the actual rate constant: k = k[NO2], 1.0 × 102 s1 = k(1.0 × 1013 molecules/cm3) k = 1.0 × 1011 cm3 molecules1 s1 37.

a. We check for first-order dependence by graphing ln[concentration] versus time for each set of data. The rate dependence on NO is determined from the first set of data since the ozone concentration is relatively large compared to the NO concentration, so it is effectively constant.

(21.95 23.03) = 3.6 s1 (300. 0) 103 s

d. From NO experiment, Rate = k[NO][O3] = k[NO] where k = k[O3]. k = 1.8 s1 = k(1.0 × 1014 molecules/cm3), k = 1.8 × 1014 cm3 molecules1 s1 We can check this from the ozone data. Rate = k[O3] = k[NO][O3], where k = k[NO]. k = 3.6 s1 = k(2.0 × 1014 molecules/cm3), k = 1.8 × 1014 cm3 molecules1 s1 Both values of k agree. 38.

This problem differs in two ways from previous problems: 1. A product is measured instead of a reactant. 2. Only the volume of a gas is given and not the concentration. We can find the initial concentration of C6H5N2Cl from the amount of N2 evolved after infinite time when all the C6H5N2Cl has decomposed (assuming the reaction goes to completion). n=

PV 1.00 atm (58.3 103 L) = 2.20 × 103 mol N2 0.08206L atm RT 323 K K mol

Because each mole of C6H5N2Cl that decomposes produces one mole of N2, the initial concentration (t = 0) of C6H5N2Cl was: 2.20 103 mol = 0.0550 M 40.0 103 L

We can similarly calculate the moles of N2 evolved at each point of the experiment, subtract that from 2.20 × 103 mol to get the moles of C6H5N2Cl remaining, and then calculate [C6H5N2Cl] at each time. We would then use these results to make the appropriate graph to determine the order of the reaction. Because the rate constant is related to the slope of the straight line, we would favor this approach to get a value for the rate constant. There is a simpler way to check for the order of the reaction that saves doing a lot of math. The quantity (V Vt ), where V = 58.3 mL N2 evolved and Vt = mL of N2 evolved at time t, will be proportional to the moles of C6H5N2Cl remaining; (V Vt ) will also be

628

CHAPTER 15

CHEMICAL KINETICS

proportional to the concentration of C6H5N2Cl. Thus we can get the same information by using (V Vt ) as our measure of [C6H5N2Cl]. If the reaction is first order, a graph of ln(V Vt ) versus t would be linear. The data for such a graph are: t (s)

We can see from the graph that this plot is linear, so the reaction is first order. The differential rate law is d[C6H5N2Cl]/dt = Rate = k[C6H5N2Cl], and the integrated rate law is ln[C6H5N2Cl] = kt + ln[C6H5N2Cl]0. From separate data, k was determined to be 6.9 × 102 s1. 39.

Because [V]0 > > [AV]0, the concentration of V is essentially constant in this experiment. We have a pseudo-first-order reaction in AV: Rate = k[AV][V] = k[AV], where k = k[V]0 The slope of the ln[AV] versus time plot is equal to k. k = slope = 0.32 s1; k

Comparing experiments 1 and 2, as the concentration of AB is doubled, the initial rate increases by a factor of 4. The reaction is second order in AB.

Box a has 8 NO2 molecules. Box b has 4 NO2 molecules, and box c has 2 NO2 molecules. Box b represents what is present after the first half-life of the reaction, and box c represents what is present after the second half-life. a. For first order kinetics, t1/2 = 0.693/k; the half-life for a first order reaction is concentration independent. Therefore, the time for box c, the time it takes to go through two half-lives, will be 10 + 10 = 20 minutes. b. For second order kinetics, t1/2 = 1/k[A]0; the half-life for a second order reaction is inversely proportional to the initial concentration. So if the first half-life is 10 minutes, the second half-life will be 20 minutes. For a second order reaction, the time for box c will be 10 + 20 = 30 minutes. c. For zero order kinetics, t1/2 = [A]0/2k; the half-life for a zero order reaction is directly related to the initial concentration. So if this reaction was zero order, then the second half-life would decrease from 10 min to 5 min. The time for box c will be 10 + 5 = 15 minutes if the reaction is zero order.

43.

For a first-order reaction, the integrated rate law is ln([A]/[A]0) = kt. Solving for k:

0.250 mol/ L = k × 120. s, k = 0.0116 s1 ln 1.00 mol/ L

0.350 mol/ L = 0.0116 s1 × t, t = 150. s ln 2.00 mol/ L 44.

Successive half-lives increase in time for a second-order reaction. Therefore, assume reaction is second order in A. t1/2 =

a. The integrated rate law for a second order reaction is 1/[A] = kt + 1/[A]0, and the halflife expression is t1/2 = 1/k[A]0. We could use either to solve for t1/2. Using the integrated rate law:

a. When a reaction is 75.0% complete (25.0% of reactant remains), this represents two halflives (100% → 50%→ 25%). The first-order half-life expression is t1/2 = (ln 2)/k. Because there is no concentration dependence for a first-order half-life, 320. s = two halflives, t1/2 = 320./2 = 160. s. This is both the first half-life, the second half-life, etc. b. t1/2 =

Because [B]0 >> [A]0, the B concentration is essentially constant during this experiment, so rate = k[A] where k = k[B]2. For this experiment, the reaction is a pseudo-first-order reaction in A.
