Card Set Information
may chem exam
kinetics, equilibrium, & thermo
5 factors of collion theory
nature of reaction
only certain regions (slower than ionic)
all sides the same
how does temperature affect reaction rate?
temperature --> KE--> how fast reaction happens
lowers the activation energy & speeds the rate of reaction
how do catalsyts work?
orients molecules so they collide faster
why does reaction rate change as the reaction progresses?
reactants collide & form products, reactant [ ] decreases & makes the rate go down
study of reaction rate
study of energy flow
heat flowing at constant pressure
disorder of system
how does concentration affect reaction rate?
it depends on the molarity, if there is an increase in  there will be more collisions, decrease in  cause less collisions
unstable & on top of the energy hill
what is the slow step in a reaction mechanism?
the rate determining step
1st order reaction:
reaction rate is directly proportional to the 
products are favored
Gibb's free energy equation
happens without outside intneractions
happens with outside interaction
Rate f = Rate r
where 's stay the same
---> shift to the right
