Chapter 14 Terms

20 terms throughout chapter 14

Reaction Rate The speed at which a chemical reaction occurs
Chemical Kinetics The area of chemistry concerned with the speeds, or rates, of reactions
Instantaneous rate The rate at a particular instant during the reaction
Rate law The rate depends on reactant concentrations
Rate constant Constant K
Reaction orders The exponents m and n
Overall reaction order The sum of the orders with respect to each reactant represented in the rate law
First order reaction On whose rate depends on the concentration of a single reactant to the first power
Second order reaction On whose rate depends either on a reactant concentration raised to the second power or On the concentration of two reactants each raised to the first power
Zero order reaction One in which the rate of disappearance of A is independent of [A]
Half life The time required for the concentration of a reactant to reach half its initial value
Activation energy The minimum energy required to initiate a chemical reaction
Activated complex or the transition state The difference between the energy of the starting molecule and the highest energy along the reaction pathway is the activation energy
Arrhenius equation k=Ae^-Esuba/RT
Frequency factor Related to the frequency of collisions and the probability that the collisions are favorable oriented for reaction.
Elementary reactons Both reactions occur in a single event of step
Molecularity The number of molecules that participate as reactants in an elementary reaction
Unimolecular A single molecule is involved
Bimolecular Reactions involving the collision of two reactant molecules
Termolecular Elementary reactions involving the simultaneous collision of three molecules
Reaction mechanism The steps by which a reaction occurs

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
