The effect of concentration on rate

Rate of reaction = rate at which reactants are turned into products

For example-

The decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to form water and oxygen.

We could measure the rate or this reaction in the moles of product (H2O or O2) formed per a second…

Oxygen can be collected and measured using an inverted burette.

volume of 02/ cm 3

Time /s

Looking at the graph you can see-
o The graph is steep at first, when the concentration of hydrogen peroxide is highest, before
any has been used up. The rate of reaction at…

Gives the general rate equation rate = k [A]m [B]n

Rate [A]

Order of reaction 0 (zero) with respect to A ­ means no change in the rate of reaction when I change [A]

Order of reaction 1 with respect to A ­ means that if [A] is doubled, then…

mixture at the point t=0, or by using a clock technique to find the reaction time for
a small amount of reaction to take place)
o Half-lives method- By using the progress curve to find half-lives for the
reaction you can see that if the half-lives are constant, the reaction…
