1

Rate of a reaction

proportional to the concentration of a particular reactant raised to the power of it's order.

New cards
2

K

Proportionality/Rate constant

New cards
3

Finding orders of reaction

Only through experiments

New cards
4

Concentration-time graphs plotting

Gas collection, mass loss and colour change

New cards
5

Monitoring rate with a colorimeter

Measures light absorbed by solution. Select a filter with complimentary colours; zero colorimeter with water; plot a calibration curve with known concentrations; take absorbance readings at timed intervals; compare to curve.

New cards
6

Concentration-time graphs - zero order

Gradient = k

New cards
7

Half-life

time taken for half of a reactant to be used up

New cards
8

Concentration-time graphs - first order

Constant half-life. Exponential decay

New cards
9

Finding K on C-T graphs, first order

substitute values of concentration and rate from tangent into rate equation; K=ln2/half-life

New cards
10

Rate-concentration graph - zero order

y-intercept = k

New cards
11

Rate-concentration graph - first order

Gradient = k

New cards
12

Rate-concentration graph - second order

k = gradient of rate-concentration^2 graph

New cards
13

Clock reaction

Calculates initial rate. Time, t, is measured for a visual change. Initial rate is proportional to 1/t

New cards
14

Iodine clock reaction

Formation of iodine, t=time until first appearance of iodine colour. Starch often added to form a complex - dark blue-black colour appears when Na2S2O3 (Sodium thiosulfate) is used up.

New cards
15

Assumptions on average rate of reaction

Constant, and same as initial rate (accurate providing less than 15% of the reaction has taken place)

New cards
16

Why is it expected that reactions happen in a series of steps

Unlikely that multiple species collide simultaneously

New cards
17

The slowest step

rate determining step

New cards
18

The rate-determining step

Only includes species on the rate equation, orders of which match the number of species in the rds

New cards
19

Increase in temperature

increase in rate and rate constant. Shifts boltzmann distribution to the right, increasing the proportion of particles that exceed the activation energy.

New cards
20

The Arrhenius Equation

k=Ae^(-Ea/RT)

New cards
21

lnk = lnA - Ea/RT

Gradient = -Ex/R ; y-intercept = Ln A

New cards
22

Heterogeneous equilibria

Species of different states. Only gases and solutions included in Kc as solids/liquids have constant concentrations.

New cards
23

Kp

equilibrium constant in terms of partial pressures of gases, which are proportional to it's concentration.

New cards
24

Mole fraction of A

moles of A/total moles ; Volume of A/total volume

New cards
25

Sum of the mole fractions

= 1

New cards
26

Partial pressure of A

mole fraction of A x total pressure

New cards
27

Kp expression

includes ONLY gases

New cards
28

Application Kp

Endurance athletes train at high altitude to produce haemoglobin with extra oxygen containing abilities

New cards
29

K is only affected by

temperature

New cards
30

Exothermic reaction, increase temperature

Kc decreases (decrease in product yield) ; Kp: Partial pressures of reactants increase, shift to left, lower Kp value

New cards
31

Endothermic reaction, increase temperature

Kc increases (increase product yield) ; Partial pressures of products increase, shift to right, higher Kp value

New cards
32

Change in concentration or pressure

does not affect K

New cards
33

If total pressure doubles

so does each partial pressure

New cards
34

Increase pressure, Kc

Kc doesn't change. Ratio of expression now less/more than Kc value. Concentrations of reactants/products increase/decrease to return system to equilibrium and restore ratio of Kc

New cards
35

Conjugate acid-base pair

Two species that can be interconverted by transfer of a proton

New cards
36

pH scale

Measures concentration of H+ ions.

New cards
37

pH =

-log[H+]

New cards
38

[H+] =

10^-pH

New cards
39

Change in 1 pH unit

10 fold change in H+

New cards
40

In Strong acids

[H+] = [HA]

New cards
41

Ka

acid dissociation constant

New cards
42

Ka =

[H+][A-]/[HA]

New cards
43

The stronger the acid

the LARGER the Ka value and the SMALLER the pKa value

New cards
44

The weaker the acid

the SMALLER the Ka value and the LARGER the pKa value

New cards
45

Approximation 1 on weak acids

HA dissociates to produce equal ammounts of H+ and A- ; [H+] = [A-]

New cards
46

Approximation 2 on weak acids

Dissociation is small, so [HA]eqm = [HA]start

New cards
47

Ka for weak acids

[H+]^2[HA]

New cards
48

Ka determined experimentally

Prepare standard of weak acid at known concentration, measure pH with a pH metre

New cards
49

Limitations of approximation 1 of weak acid

If ph>6, then [H+] from dissociation of water will be significant compared to acid. So assumption breaks down with very weak/dilute acids

New cards
50

Limitations of approximation 2 of weak acid

Breaks down when [H+] is significant. , so doesnt work for stronger weak acids with Ka>10^-2 and very dilute solutions.

New cards
51

Kw

The ionic product of water, 1x10^-14

New cards
52

Kw =

[H+][OH-]

New cards
53

Change in temperature effect Kw

Kw varies

New cards
54

Water is neutral so

[H+] = [OH-]

New cards
55

For pH values with whole numbers

indices for [H+] and [OH-] add up to -14

New cards
56

A strong base

an alkali that completely dissociates it OH- in solution.

New cards
57

pH of Strong base

[OH-] = [NaOH], and Kw

New cards
58

Ammonia is a weak base

dissolves in water releasing OH- ions from water molecules. NH3 + H2O
New cards
59

Buffer Solution

A system that minimises pH changes on addition of small amounts of an acid or a base

New cards
60

Preparing buffer solutions from weak acid and it's salt

Solution of a weak acid and it's salt. HA only partially dissociates a small amount - source of HA. Salt completely dissolves, provides A- ions.

New cards
61

Preparing buffer solutions from partial neutralisation

Add an aqueous solution of an alkali to an excess of weak acid. Weak acid is partially neutralised, forming conjugate base and some HA left over.

New cards
62

Conjugate base of buffer solution removes added acid

[H+] increases, reacts with A- ions, equilibrium shifts to the left, removing most H+ ions.

New cards
63

Weak acid of buffer solution removes added alkali

[OH-] increases, reacts with H+ ions, HA dissociates, shifting equilibrium to the right to restore H+ ions.

New cards
64

Buffer most effective when

[HA]=[A-] ; pH of buffer is same as pKa of HA

New cards
65

Fine tune pH of buffer solution

ratio of concentrations of the weak acid and it's base can be adjusted

New cards
66

pH buffer solution

[H+] = Ka x [HA]/[A-]

New cards
67

Ideal pH for blood plasma

7.35-7.45

New cards
68

Converting it into CO2 which is then exhaled by lungs

New cards
71

pH titration curve - equivalence point

the volume of one solution that reacts exactly with the volume of the other. Amounts use match stoichiometry of the reaction.

New cards
72

acid-base indicator

a weak acid that has a distinctly different colour from its conjugate base.

New cards
73

Methyl orange

Red in acid, yellow in alkali

New cards
74

Added Alkali

shift right

New cards
75

Added Acid

shift left

New cards
76

At the end point

[HA] = [A-], Ka = [H+], pKa = pH

New cards
77

Indicator must have a colour change

which coincides with vertical section of curve. Ideally, end point = equivalence point

New cards
78

weak acid - weak base reaction

No indicator is suitable

New cards
79

Standard enthalpy change of solution

one mole of a solute dissolves in a water under standard conditions

New cards
80

New cards
85

Enthalpy change of Hydration

The enthalpy change that accompanies the dissolving of gaseous ions in water to form one mole of aqueous ions

New cards
86

Sol H

q/n

New cards
87

Why are first electron affinities exothermic?

Because electrons are attracted to nucleus

New cards
88

Why are second electron affinities endothermic?

Because the ion is already negative so repels the electron. So energy is needed to force it in

New cards
89

Effect of ionic size on Lattice Enthalpy

ionic radius increases, attraction decreases, less negative, melting point decreases

New cards
90

Effect of ionic charge on Lattice Enthalpy

ionic charge increases, attraction increases, more negative, melting point increases

New cards
91

Effect of ionic size on Hydration

ionic radius increases, attraction between ion and water decreases, less negative

New cards
92

Effect of ionic charge on Hydration

ionic charge increasing, attraction increases, more negative

New cards
93

Soluble

attraction between ions in ionic lattice needs to be broken

New cards
94

If sum of hydration is larger than lattice enthalpy

then enthalpy change of solution is exothermic and should dissolve.

New cards
95

Enthalpy change of solution doesn't take into account

temperature and entropy

New cards
96

Entropy

dispersal of energy within the chemicals making up the chemical system

New cards
97

Increasing entropy
