Chemical kinetics is a study of measuring the rates of chemical reactions. This involves calculations, which may require your mathematics knowledge. It is a good teaser to those of us who think we are super good in Chemistry and Math.
Rate = k [A] [B]
Rate = k [A]^{2} [B]
Rate = k [A] [B]^{2}
Rate = k [A]^{2} [B]^{2}
Order can be determined experimentally
Order of a reaction is equal to the sum of the power of concentration terms in differential rate law
It is not affected with the stoichiometric coefficients of the reactants
Order can be fractional
Unimolecular Reaction
First order reaction
Second order reaction
Bimolecular reaction
Decrease the rate of time for the conversion of X to Y.
Increase the rate of time for the conversion of X to Y.
No change in rate of time for the conversion of X to Y.
No dependency on time.
