For this assignment, follow the various links provided and answer the corresponding questions. Part 1: The Collision Theory of Reaction Rates -

Watch the YouTube video and then answer the question below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSInI !"vh# What is necessary $or a reaction to ta%e place?

1. If you have a situation involving two reactants they can only react together if they come into contact with each other. Coming in contact is not enough for reaction to take place, they also need to have the following: Correct Orientation and Sufficient energy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=&a'(u)*+,-. Watch this video and answer the questions below: /!plain in your own words0 what 1orrect Orientation and Sufficient energy mean.

aseball Analogy

In the picture #elow, the #ase#all #at will represent $eactant % and the #ase#all will represent $eactant &. % reaction will only #e successful if the #atter hits a homerun. If the #atter does not hit a homerun, the reaction will #e considered a failure. $emem#er, #ase#all is a game designed around failure. %lso remem#er that #ase#all is awesome. $ead the four scenarios #elow and answer the questions that follow.

'cenario 1: (he pitcher throws a fast#all down the middle of the plate. (he #atter takes a swing and misses the #all. (he umpire yells, )'trike one*+ 'cenario ,: (he pitcher throws a change-up and the #atter checks his swing. (he #atter .ust #arely makes contact with the #all and it dri##les down in front of his feet into foul territory. (he umpire yells, )Foul #all* 'trike two*+

'cenario /: (he pitcher throws a curve #all that looks like it might catch the outside corner of the plate. (he #atter swings with all his strength, #ut the #at gra0es the underside of the #all and the #all skews off to the right into the crowd. (he umpire yells, )Foul #all*+ and the two strikes remain on the #atter. 'cenario 1: (he pitcher throws another fast#all down the middle of the plate. (he #atter swings and hits a #all high into the air, which clears the centerfield fence. (he umpire raises his hand in the air and twirls his finger, indicating a homerun. 1.
