Flashcards in 18 Deck (10):
Rate of reaction
Change in concentration of a substance in unit time
Time for concentration to fall by half
First order half life
How to derive k from a concentration-time graph?
k = ln(2) / half life
Gradient of a concentration-time graph
Gradient of a rate-concentration graph
Rate constant, k `
Rate determining step
The slowest step in the reaction mechanism of a multistep reaction
Why is a reaction unlikely to occur in 1 step?
More than 2 species
Stoichiometry in the rate equation does not match overall equation
