Kinetics : RateConstantUnits (8 Variations)
The isomerization of CH3NC to CH3CN has a rate constant of 0.46 s-1 at 600 K.

(1) Based on the units of the rate constant, what is the order of the reaction? {1:MULTICHOICE:zero-order#No, that is not correct.~=first-order#Correct!~second-order#No, that is not correct.~third-order#No, that is not correct.}

(2) What is the concentration of CH3CN after 0.20 minutes of reaction if the initial concentration is 0.10 M? {1:NUMERICAL:=4e-4:1e-5#Correct!~%50%4e-4:5e-5#Close, but not quite.}(Do not include units!)

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.

Visualizing the Transition State: A Hands-on Approach to the Arrhenius Equation  Thomas S. Kuntzleman, Matthew S. Swanson, and Deborah K. Sayers
Pennies and dice are used to simulate the kinetics of two irreversible "reactions" with a hands-on, Monte Carlo approach. Arrhenius plots of the data generated yield activation energies comparable to assigned values and pre-exponential factors close to what would be expected based on the probability of a "reactant" achieving the correct orientation for conversion into "product". A comparison of the values obtained for the pre-exponential factors for the different simulations allows students to semi-quantitatively discuss the orientational requirement that is contained within this factor.

A Student Laboratory Experiment Based on the Vitamin C Clock Reaction  Ed Vitz
Describes an adaptation of the vitamin C clock reaction to a student laboratory experiment in which the orders with respect to peroxide and iodide, the rate constant, and the activation energy are determined by the method of initial rates.

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.
