Course Objective At the first half of course we attempt to understand the molecular mechanism of change.). we need to understand how molecules move. After the exam. How to use integrated rate expressions to determine the reaction order and find the rate constant for a single reaction given concentration vs. rate coefficient. etc. How to make an Arrhenius plot and extract rate parameters from it. elementary reaction. How and when to use classical analytical approximations made in analyzing reaction mechanisms: the partial equilibrium approximation and the pseudo-steady-state approximation. At this half of course we will be concerned with the theory of reactions or mechanisms. bimolecular reaction. we will introduce the language and terms used to describe the rates of chemical reactions. and describe the overall rates of reaction. How to write rate equations and how to analytically integrate simple rate expressions for a single reaction (0th order. reaction order. Furthermore the course contains these subjects. unimolecular reaction. 1st order. reaction mechanism. -Introduction of Kinetic theory -Postulate -Pressure of ideal gases in kinetic theory -Internal energy of an ideal gas -Root mean-square velocity -Temperature and kinetic energy -Collision Number -Mean Free Path -Viscosity of gasses -Maxwell Speed Distribution Directly from Boltzmann Distribution -Degree of freedom -The translational kinetic energy -The Specific heat of gases -The collision theory of reaction rate -Transition State Theory -Photochemistry -Photochemical reactions -Photochemical law . in free flight in gases and what dose degree of freedom tell us. 2nd order. time data. reactive intermediates. Definitions of: reaction rate. Arrhenius equation. law of mass action.

We will have several "endurance problems".Problem solving skills are very important to chemists. The solving of some endurance problems must be done in" In class problem and discussion" Books Any general physical chemistry text (such as P W Atkins Physical Chemistry. OUP. 2007. Elsevier Inc.House "Principles of Chemical Kinetics" Second Edition. any edition) will have several chapters on chemical kinetics.of collisions with wall -Mean Free Path -Viscosity of gases Week 5: .
