CHAPTER 13 BASIC HOMEWORK

KINETICS I

Question 1

For the reaction: 3BrO(aq) –> BrO3(aq) + 2Br(aq) [BrO– ]initial is 0.60 M. 70 seconds later [BrO– ] is 0.12 M. What is the rate of change of [BrO– ] in M/s? (The brackets, [ ], indicate concentration, that is, molarity (M) or moles/liter.)

Correct

Explanation

Notice that the rate of change of a reactant is negative because it is being used up.

Question 2

Under a different set of conditions, the initial concentration of Br is 0.00 M. 81 seconds later it is 0.82 M. What is the rate of change of Br in M/s?
Correct

Explanation

Notice that the rate of change of a product is positive because it is being produced.

Question 3

Under a different set of conditions, the initial concentration of BrO3 is 0.23 M. 14 seconds later it is 0.83 M. What is the rate of change of BrO3 in M/s?
Correct

Explanation

Notice that the rate of change of a product is positive because it is being produced.

Question 4

Still for the reaction: 3BrO(aq) –> BrO3(aq) + 2Br(aq), what is the rate of reaction in M/s, if Δ[BrO– ]/Δt = -0.074 M/s? Help: Rate of reaction
Correct

Explanation

We are given the rate of change of [BrO– ]. Because the chemical equation has 3 moles of BrO– , we must divide by 3 to get the rate of reaction.
CHEM126 - CHAPTER 13 - BASIC HOMEWORK / KINETICS I 3
 Note that the rate of reaction is always positive.

Question 5

Under a different set of conditions Δ[BrO3 ]/Δt = 0.029 M/s. What is the rate of reaction in M/s?
Correct

Explanation

In this case, the coefficient of [BrO3] is 1. Therefore:
Δ[BrO3 ]/Δt = Rate of reaction = .029
Note that the rate of reaction is always positive.

Question 6

Under a different set of conditions Δ[Br– ]/Δt = 0.035 M/s. What is the rate of reaction in M/s?
Correct

Explanation

CHEM126 - CHAPTER 13 - BASIC HOMEWORK / KINETICS I 4
Note that the rate of reaction is always positive.

Question 7

If Δ[BrO3 ]/Δt = 0.010 M/s. What is Δ[Br– ]/Δt in M/s? Reminder, the rate of change [BrO3 ] is Δ[BrO3 ]/Δt. Help: Rate of change of reactants and products
Correct

Explanation

Once again, take a look at the coefficients (molar amounts) in the chemical reaction to help you solve this one. If Δ[BrO3 ]/Δt = 0.010 M/s, then Δ[Br– ]/Δt = 0.010 x 2 = 0.020

Question 8

If Δ[BrO3– ]/Δt = 0.024 M/s. What is [BrO– ]/Δt in M/s?
Correct

Explanation

Note that [BrO– ]/Δt is negative, because BrO is a reactant.

Question 9

The rate of change of [B] is -0.243 M/min. What is the rate of reaction for the following reaction in M/min? 2A + 5B → 3C + 7D
Correct

Explanation

(-.0243) / -5 = .0486

Question 10

Under a different set of conditions, the rate of change of [C] is 0.162 M/min. What is the rate of change of [D] in M/min? Hint given in feedback
Correct

Explanation

 Hint, if a = b and b = c, then a = c. Specifically, what is the rate of reaction using [C] and what is the rate using [D]? Set the rate using [C] = the rate using [D] and solve for the rate of change of [D].

Question 11

If the rate of change of [C] is 0.149 M/min. What is the rate of change of [A] in M/s? Hint given in feedback’
Correct

Explanation

Hint. What is the rate of reaction using [C] and what is the rate using [A]? Set the rate using [C] = the rate using [A] and solve for the rate of change of [A]. Check: is the rate of change of [A] positive or negative? Finally, units for rate of change of [A] are M/s not M/min. (1/min) = (1/min)(1 min/60 s).

Question 12

For the reaction 2A +3B → C + 4D The rate of reaction = k[A]0.5[B]2 Which of the following statements are true?

Select one or more:
 Correct
 Correct
 Correct

Explanation

 To determine order of a particular reactant, look at its superscript. To determine overall reaction rate order, find the sum of superscripts.

Question 13

For a new reaction with reactant “A”, suppose the rate of reaction is 0.04 M/sec when [A] = 0.23 M. The concentration of A is doubled to 0.46 M. Match the rate of reaction to the reaction order.

Rate is still 0.04 M/s Correct
Rate is 0.04 x 20.5 = 0.057 M/s Correct
Rate is 0.04 x 21 = 0.08 M/s Correct
Rate is 0.04 x 22 = 0.16 M/s Correct

Explanation

Here we are essentially comparing the relative amount of change in concentration (∆[A]) to the relative amount of change in reaction rate in order to find the reaction order. Note that K (rate constant) cancels out in each equation.

Question 22

For the reaction 2A(g) + 3B(g) → C(g) + 2D(g) the following experimental data was obtained for the rate:

Run[A] (M)[B] (M)Rate (M/min)
10.010.22.2
20.010.44.4
30.020.48.8

The rate of reaction = kAxBy. What is x? Hint given in feedback

Correct

Explanation

Hint: Notice that in run #2 and #3 the concentration of B does not change. So, it does not change the rate. Therefore, you can use these runs to find the order of the reaction with respect to A. In what two runs is the concentration of A the same? Use these runs to find the order of the reaction with respect to B. From run 2 to 3, [A] doubles. Rate also doubles. This means that x=1.

Question 23

What is y?
Correct

Explanation

From run 1 to 2, [B] doubles. Rate also doubles. This means that y=1.
