In this lesson our instructor talks about chemical kinetics. First, he discusses rate laws and methods of initial rates. Then he talks about integrated rate laws, reaction mechanisms, reaction rate, temperatures, and catalysis. He ends the lesson with a summary and two helpful sample problems .
Kinetics studies the factors that can influence the rate of a chemical reaction.
The method of initial rates and the use of integrated rate laws can help solve for the rate orders and for the rate constant.
The slowest step of a reaction mechanism dictates the overall reaction rate.
The Arrhrenius equation relates the temperature of a reaction directly to its reaction rate.
