reaction rates:
the change of the concentration of the reactants and products over a given time

rate orders:
equation:
parameter determined experimentally that relates reaction rates to concentration of the reactants

rate constant (k):
probability constant that relates reaction concentration to rate

rate law:
rate=k[A][B]2 (would be third order)
an equation that defines the relationship between reaction concentration and rate

equation to determine rate order for "hard case"

1st order reaction integrated rate law equation:
Also, how to plot and what it would look like
 •plot ln(A) vs time
 if 1st order: the slope is negative (k) and it's a straight line

half life 1st order reaction equation:

2nd order reaction integrated rate law:
also, how to plot and what it would look like
 •plot 1/A vs time
 if 2nd order: the slope is positive (+k) and it's a straight line

half life 2nd order reaction equation:

zero order reaction equation
Also, plot
 •plot [A] vs time
 if zero order slope is negative (k) and linear

halflife zero order reaction equation:


define catalyst
 increases rate of reaction without being consumed in reaction.
 Also, you can increase your energy in the beginning and lower your transition state energy from different, more stable complexes
