The Rate of a Reaction
• Kinetics is the study of rates of chemical
reactions and the mechanisms by which
they occur.
• The reaction rate is the increase in
concentration of a product per unit time or
decrease in concentration of a reactant
per unit time.
• A reaction mechanism is the series of
molecular steps by which a reaction
occurs.

5
The Rate of a Reaction
• Thermodynamics (Chapter 15) determines if a reaction
can occur.
• Kinetics (Chapter 16) determines how quickly a reaction
occurs.
– Some reactions that are thermodynamically
feasible are kinetically so slow as to be
imperceptible.

• [A] is the symbol for the concentration of A in M ( mol/L).
• Note that the reaction does not go entirely to completion.
– The [A] and [B] > 0 plus the [C] and [D] < 1.

The Rate of Reaction
• Reaction rates are the rates at which reactants
disappear or products appear.
• This movie is an illustration of a reaction rate.

The Rate of Reaction
• The rate of a simple onestep reaction is directly
proportional to the concentration of the reacting
substance.
• [A] is the concentration of A in molarity or
moles/L.
• k is the specific rate constant.
– k is an important quantity in this chapter.
j ¦ j ¦ A k = Rate or A Rate

11
The Rate of Reaction
• For a simple expression like Rate = k[A]
– If the initial concentration of A is doubled, the initial
rate of reaction is doubled.
• If the reaction is proceeding twice as fast, the amount of
time required for the reaction to reach equilibrium would
be:
A. The same as the initial time.
B. Twice the initial time.
C. Half the initial time.
• If the initial concentration of A is halved the
initial rate of reaction is cut in half.
12
The Rate of Reaction
• If more than one reactant molecule appears
in the equation for a onestep reaction, we
can experimentally determine that the
reaction rate is proportional to the molar
concentration of the reactant raised to the
power of the number of molecules involved in
the reaction.

The Rate of Reaction
• Rate Law Expressions must be determined
experimentally.
– The rate law cannot be determined from the
balanced chemical equation.
– This is a trap for new students of kinetics.
• The balanced reactions will not work because most
chemical reactions are not onestep reactions.
• Other names for rate law expressions are:
1. rate laws
2. rate equations
3. rate expressions
14
The Rate of Reaction
• Important terminology for kinetics.
• The order of a reaction can be expressed in
terms of either:
1 each reactant in the reaction or
2 the overall reaction.
Order for the overall reaction is the sum of the orders
for each reactant in the reaction.
• For example:

experimentally determined.

expression:
– If the [A] is doubled the rate of the reaction will
increase by a factor of 4. 2

– If the [A] is halved the rate of the reaction will

Factors That Affect Reaction
Rates
• There are several factors that can
influence the rate of a reaction:
1. The nature of the reactants.
2. The concentration of the reactants.
3. The temperature of the reaction.
4. The presence of a catalyst.
• We will look at each factor individually.

Concentration vs. Time: The
Integrated Rate Equation
• The integrated rate equation relates time
and concentration for chemical and
nuclear reactions.
– From the integrated rate equation we can
predict the amount of product that is produced
in a given amount of time.
• Initially we will look at the integrated rate
equation for first order reactions.
These reactions are 1
st
order in the reactant
and 1
st
order overall.

Collision Theory of
Reaction Rates
• Three basic events must occur for a
reaction to occur the atoms, molecules or
ions must:
1. Collide.
2. Collide with enough energy to break and
form bonds.
3. Collide with the proper orientation for a
reaction to occur.
100
Collision Theory of
Reaction Rates
• One method to increase the number of collisions
and the energy necessary to break and reform
bonds is to heat the molecules.
• As an example, look at the reaction of methane
and oxygen:
• We must start the reaction with a match.
– This provides the initial energy necessary to break
the first few bonds.
– Afterwards the reaction is selfsustaining.

Transition State Theory
• Transition state theory postulates that
reactants form a high energy intermediate,
the transition state, which then falls apart into
the products.
• For a reaction to occur, the reactants must
acquire sufficient energy to form the
transition state.
– This energy is called the activation energy or E

Synthesis Question
• The Chernobyl nuclear reactor accident
occurred in 1986. At the time that the
reactor exploded some 2.4 MCi of
radioactive
137
Cs was released into the
atmosphere. The halflife of
137
Cs is 30.1
years. In what year will the amount of
137
Cs released from Chernobyl finally
decrease to 100 Ci? A Ci is a unit of
radioactivity called the Curie.

Group Question
•
99m
Tc has a halflife of 6.02 hours and is
often used in nuclear medical diagnostic
tests. Patients are injected with
approximately 10 mCi of
99m
Tc that is then
directed to specific sites in the patient’s
body to detect gallstones, brain tumors
and function, and other medical
conditions. How long will the patient have
a higher than normal radioactivity level
after they have been injected with 10 mCi
of
99m
Tc?
