Chemistry Unit 5
Collision theoryIn order to react in the first place, minus all the temperature and surface area malarkey, to particles must collide with each other and they “may react”. May react? Isn’t it enouh to ha!e two particles collidin with each other? "ell no they ha!e to collide the correct way round #$% with the riht enery for the &onds to &reak.
Consider a simple reaction &etween ethene C(
 and (C+ they react to form chloroethane.
#s a result of the collision a dou&le &ond is &roken and a sinle &ond if formed
 he reaction can only happen if the end of the hydroen approaches the car&on-car&on dou&le &ond, any other orientation and the reaction cannot happen
In unsymmetrical compounds the orientation is !ery important as to whether the reaction will take place
#cti!ation enery
!en if the particles are the riht way round they still won’t react unless they ha!e a minimum amount of enery called the acti!ation enery./urface #rea he more finely di!ided the solid is, the faster the reaction happens. # powdered solid will
 produce a faster reaction than if the same mass is present as a sinle lump. he powdered solid has a reater surface area than the sinle lump.
 he e0planation
#s we know from the pre!ious section particles has to collide in order to react so if a particle has more surface area there is more places for the particles to collide and there fore react
Consider the reaction &etween hydrochloric acid and manesium
Increasin the speed of collisions increases the rate of reaction
Concentration/imply if you increase the concentration of the reactants you increase the rate of reaction.1ressure Increasin the pressure on a reaction in!ol!in reactin ases increases the rate of reaction. Chanin the pressure on a reaction, which in!ol!es only solids or li2uids, has no effect on the rate. emperatureIncreasin temperature increases the rate of reaction, &ecause when you increase the temperature of a su&stance this increases the kinetic enery of the particles within it. 3hey mo!e faster4 this increases the amount of collisions and more collisions ha!e the correct acti!ation enery, so there fore an increase in the rate of reaction. CatalystsCatalysts speed up rate of reaction &y creatin an alternate reaction pathway with lower acti!ation enery. Usually &y creatin intermediate compounds, the most important thin a&out catalysts is that they aren’t used up in the reaction or if they are they are recreated. Catalysts can &e homoeneous3same state as reactants4 or heteroeneous 3 different state4

 his is a constant which comes from an e2uation, p;*n, which relates the pressure, !olume and temperature of a particular num&er of moles of as. It turns up in all sorts of unlikely places
#cti!ation enery, 
 his is the minimum enery needed for the reaction to occur. o fit this into the e2uation, it has to &e e0pressed in  Doules per mole - not in kE mol
