Kinetics : ArrheniusActEnergy (4 Variations)
The rate constant for the first-order dehydration of tert-butyl alcohol at 500oC is 1.20 x 10 -4 s -1. The rate constant for this process at 600oC is 6.80 x 10 -3 s -1. Calculate the activation energy for this reaction in kJ/mol. (R = 8.314 J/mol K)

Kinetics : ArrheniusTemp (3 Variations)
The activation energy for the isomerization of cyclopropane to propene is 274 kJ/mol. By what factor does the rate of reaction increase as the temperature rises from 500oC to 550oC assuming all else remains constant? (R = 8.314 J/mol k)

Hint: This is asking for the ratio of rates which is proportional to the ratio of the rate constants, all else being equal.

Data Pooling in a Chemical Kinetics Experiment: The Aquation of a Series of Cobalt(III) Complexes  Richard S. Herrick, Kenneth V. Mills, and Lisa P. Nestor
Describes an experiment that introduces students to integrated rate laws, the search for a mechanism that is consistent with chemical and kinetic data, and the concept of activation barriers and their measurement in a curriculum whose pedagogical philosophy makes the laboratory the center of learning for undergraduates in their first two years of instruction.

Disorder and Chaos: Developing and Teaching an Interdisciplinary Course on Chemical Dynamics  Steven G. Desjardins
Describes an interdisciplinary course for nonscience majors that introduces ideas about mathematical modeling using examples based on pendulums, chemical kinetics, and population dynamics. Students learn about the nature of measurement and prediction through the use of spreadsheet software for the solution of equations and experimental data collection.

Kinetica; An Excel program to Stimulate or Analyze Kinetic Data  Leonel Vera, Pedro Ortega, Miguel Guzmán
The Excel spreadsheet Kinetica both simulates and analyzes kinetic data for simple rate equations of the form: - d[A]/dt = k [A]^n Instructors or students can generate simulated kinetic data using parameters they specify, or using parameters randomized by Kinetica. The data set that is generated may then be exported for use in exercises, homework, and exams, or may be analyzed directly within Kinetica. A kinetics data set may also be imported from an external source into Kinetica for analysis.
