CHEM1405 - Resources for Week 6


Topics and Learning Outcomes

  • Chemical Kinetics
    •  determine the rate law from experimental data
    •  determine the reaction order from the rate law
    •  use the integrated rate law (for first order reactions only)
    •  use half lifes
    •  describe the collision model of reaction kinetics
    •  appreciate the role of the activation energy in determining the rate law
    •  use the Arrhenius equation to work out the activation energy
