Section 16.1 A Model for Reaction Rates Calculate average rates of chemical reactions from experimental data. Relate rates of chemical reactions to collisions between reacting particles. Section 16.1 A Model for Reaction Rates (cont.) reaction rate collision theory

activated complex activation energy Collision theory is the key to understanding why some reactions are faster than others. Expressing Reaction Rates The reaction rate of a chemical reaction is stated as the change in concentration of a

reactant or product per unit of time. the reaction rate of a chemical reaction is generally stated as the change in concentration of a reactant or product per unit of time, expressed as mol/(Ls). Brackets around the formula for a substance denote its molar concentration. For example, [NO2 ] represents the molar

concentration of NO 2 . Expressing Reaction Rates (cont.) Reaction rates are determined experimentally. Collision Theory Collision theory states that atoms, ions, and molecules must collide in order to

react. Collision Theory (cont.) An activated complex sometimes is called transation state is a temporary, unstable arrangement of atoms in which old bonds are breaking and new bonds are forming.

Q: What might prevent the occurrence of a reaction per each collision? 1-incorrect orientations 2- insufficient energy. Collision Theory (cont.) The minimum amount of energy that reacting particles must have to form the activated complex and lead to a reaction is called the activation

energy Ea. A high Ea means that relatively few collisions have the required energy to produce the activated complex, and the reaction rate is slow. A low Ea means that more collisions have sufficient energy to react, and the reaction rate is faster. Think of this relationship in terms of a person pushing a heavy cart up a hill. If the hill is high, a substantial amount of energy is required to move the cart, and it might take a

long time to get it to the top. If the hill is low, less energy is required and the task might be accomplished faster Collision Theory (cont.) Collision Theory (cont.) When an exothermic reaction occurs, molecules collide with enough energy to

overcome the activation energy barrier. They form an activated complex, then release energy and form products at a lower energy level. Collision Theory (cont.) In the reverse reaction, which is endothermic, the reactant molecules are at

a lower energy than the products. To react, the reactants must absorb enough energy to overcome the activation energy barrier and form higher-energy products. Q1: Relate collision theory to reaction rate. Collision theory explains why reactions occur and how reaction rates can be modified.

Q2: Explain what the reaction rate indicates about a particular chemical reaction. The reaction rate indicates the rate of change of the concentration of a reactant or product in mol/(Ls). Q3: Compare the concentrations of the reactants and products during the course

of a chemical reaction (assuming no additional reactants are added ) The concentrations of the reactants decrease, and the concentrations of the products increase at the same rate . Q5: Explain why the average rate of a reaction depends on the length of the time interval over which the rate is measured.

The rate of change of a reactant or product in a chemical reaction is not linear in time Q6: Describe the relationship between activation energy and the rate of a reaction The higher the activation energy, the slower the rate of the reaction. Q7: Summarize what happens during the brief

existence of an activated complex. Bonds in the reactants are in the process of breaking, while new bonds are beginning to form to produce the products. Q8: Apply collision theory to explain why collisions between two reacting particles do not always result in the formation of a product. The collision must be in a correct orientation and have sufficient energy to form the activated

complex. Explain the negative sign for the reaction rate of reactants Explain why reaction rate for product is positive? As concentration of reactant decreases, a negative sign is used to express the rate of reaction in terms of reactants. As the

concentration of products increases, a positive sign is used in terms of products. Section 16.1 Assessment Which of the following is NOT a requirement for a reaction to occur, according to the collision theory? A. Reacting substances must collide. B. Reacting substances must be
