Equilibrium/rxn rate

collision theory atoms, ions, and molecules can react to form products when they have collided, provided that the particles have enough KE
reaction properties particles collide enough KE right orientation
activation energy minimum amount of energy particles must have to react
activated complex/transition state arrangement of atoms at peak of activation energy
rate measures the speed of any change that occurs within an interval of time
rate equation x y Rate=[reactant] [reactant]
factors affecting reaction rates temperature: higher temps = faster rates concentration: higher concentration = faster rates
catalysts substance that increases rate of reaction without being used up by allowing the reaction to occur at lower temps
inhibitor substance that interferes with the actions of the catalyst; slows reaction
reversible reaction reaction occur simultaneously in both directions
equilibrium forward and reverse reaction occurs at the same rate and the same time
le chateliers principle is stress is applied to a system in equilibrium, the system changes to relieve that stress
equilibrium constant(Keq) ratio of product concentrations to reactant concentrations at equilibrium with each concentration raised to the power equal to their coefficients
Keq > 1 product favored
Keq < 1 reactant favored
Keq used for any reactions
Ka used for acids
Kb used for bases
Ksp solubility product(for things that are dissolving in solutions)
Kp used when pressure is used instead of concentration
Kc used when concentration in used
rate laws expressions relating rate of reaction to concentration of reactants
K specific rate constant
[] molar concentration
P and Q determined experimentally (usually 0, 1, 2)
free energy energy available to do work
spontaneous reaction reaction that occurs naturally and favors formation of products at specific conditions
non-spontaneous reaction reaction that doesn't favor the formation of products at specified conditions
entropy measure of disorder of a system; influences spontaneity of reaction
particle size smaller particles = more surface area = faster rates
reactant form products forward reaction
products form reactant reverse reaction

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.
