Flashcards in 18.1 - Orders, rate equations, and rate constants Deck (10):
What is the equation for rate of reaction?
Change in concentration / change in time
What are the units of rate?
mol dm-3 s-1
What are common orders of reaction?
How would you show the order of a reactant?
How will zero order with respect to the reactant affect the rate?
It doesn't affect the rate of reaction
How does first order affect the rate?
If concentration of A is doubled, rate increases by a factor of 2 to the power of 1
How does a second order reaction affect the rate?
If the concentration of A is doubled, the rate quadruples
State the rate equation
Rate = k [A]m [B]n
What is k?
