What is rate of reaction and how do you calculate it? How do you calculate the rate constant?
change in amount of reactants and products per unit of time. Rate=k (A) (B) k=Rate/(A) (B)
1 of 13
Explain the rate determing step
Slowest rate step in a series of steps, it determines the overall rate. Reactants from rate equation or something thats dervied from it will be in the rate determining step

How do you work out the equilibrium constant of a reversible reaction?
Kc=(D) (E) / (A) (B) or products/ reactants
3 of 13
What can affect the value of Kc and how?

Define a Bronsted-Lowry acid and base
acid=proton donor base=proton acceptor

Whats the equation for the ionic product of water? How could you use it to work out the pH of a) water b) strong base?
1.Kw= (H+) (OH-) 2. a) Kw for water =(H+)squared so (H+)= Kw then pH equation b) (H+) of strong base=Kw/(OH-) then pH equation
6 of 13
What is the pH equation? How can you arrange it to work out H+ concentration?
1.pH=-log (H+) 2.(H+)=10
7 of 13
How do you calculate the pH of a) strong monoprotic acids b)strong diprotic acids c)weak acids
a) (H+)=concentration of acid as fully disscoaites, then use pH equation b) (H+)=2x concentration of acid then pH equation c) Ka=(H+)(A-)/(HA) all H+ come from acid so Ka=(H+) /(HA) so (H+)= Ka(HA) then pH equation

Sometimes pKa is used when Ka is to larger number to manage, how do you convert between the two?
pKa=-Log (Ka) or Ka=10
9 of 13
How can you calculate the pH of a mixture?
1.calculate mols of both using n=c X v (/1000 if v in cm3) 2. subtract lowest from highest to find out which is in excess 3.if strong acid) c=n/total volume then pH equation or strong base) c=n/total v then (H+)=Kw/(OH-) then pH equation

What is a buffer?
a solution which resists changes in pH when small amounts of an acid or base is added
11 of 13
Write equautions to explain how an acidic and basic buffers works

What is the simple equation used when working out the pH of an acid buffer? what happens if a small amount of a)alkali or b)acid is added
(H+)=Ka X (acid)/ (salt) then pH equation a) calcuate mols of alkali by n=c X v, take value away from (acid), add to (salt) then use original equation again b)mols of acid, take from (salt) add to (acid) then first equation
