Chemical kinetics, also known as reaction kinetics, is the study of rates of

chemical processes.

Chemical kinetics includes investigations of how different experimental

conditions can influence the speed of a chemical reaction and yield
information about the reaction's mechanism and transition states, as well as
the construction of mathematical models that can describe the characteristics
of a chemical reaction

The rate of reaction is the change in the amount of reactants or products

over a time interval .The rate of reaction in chemistry, is usually expressed in
moles/second (mol/s) or molarities/second(mol/Ls)

The speed of a chemical reaction is affected by factors such as the

temperature, concentration ,volume, surface area, and orientation.

When the temperature is greater, there is a greater fraction of particles that

have more energy than the activation energy, enabling them to collide and
react. These particles also have more kinetic energy.

At the end of this chapter we can determine the reaction order and specific
reaction rate from experimental date

1) differential method of analysis

2) integral method of analysis

CH 5 : - COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS OF RATE DATA

Differential method

A product

-rA = ( -dCA /dt ) = k CA slope = ( CA / t )

extrapolation

Ln ( -rA ) = Ln k + Ln CA

Slope = intercept = Ln k

Example

-rA ( mol / L.s ) 0.002 0.008

CA ( M) 0.1 0.2

What is the general form of power rate lat for this reaction at constant
temperature ?

-rA = k CA2

0.002( mol / L.s ) = k * ( 0.1 )2 ( mol/L)2

k= 0.2 L / mol .s

55

INTEGRAL METHOD

Need to guess reaction order

Integrate the differential form of equation used to model the reactor used
If the right reaction order is assume the plot of concentration time data
should be linear .

The plot in terms of conversion

At zero order

X = ( k/CA0) *t

Slope = ( k/CA0)

at first order

ln ( 1-(1-X) ) = k t

slope = k

at second order

( X / (X-1 )) = CA0 k t

Slope = CA0 k

Half time

Is defined as the time it takes for the concentration of reactant to fall to half of its
initial value

Slope = 1- 1

half time

Example

The half period of a first order reaction is 50 min , in what time will it go to
90% completion .

X= 0.5 t = 50 min t1/t2 = ln(1-X1)/ln(1-X2)

t 90%=166 min
