Kinetics

xA

yC + zD

The rate of change of A with
respect to time, if the reaction is
irreversible, takes the form:
d[A]
= −k[A]a
dt

Concentration

Reactions take time to reach equilibrium. This time could
be very short or very long.

Many reactions rates in the
environment are modeled d[A] = −k[A]a

Stoichiometry
Consider the following balanced chemical reaction

a X+ b Y

cZ

The equilibrium constant (K) for this reaction is defined as:
[ Z ]c
; [ ]= molar concentration.
K=
a
b
[ X ] [Y ]
If the chemical is in the solid state or pure liquid then its [ ]=1.
If the chemical is in the gaseous form, then its [ ]= its partial
pressure (P).

In-Class Exercise (Example 2.2 modified)
2 M of C6H12O6 are completely oxidized to CO2 and H2O. Find the amount of
oxygen required to complete the reaction.

Solution:
The balanced reaction is:
1C6H12O6 + 6O2

6CO2 + 6H2O

1C6H12O6 M requires 6O2 M
2 M requires

?O2 M

O2 = 6x2= 12 M
= (12 M)(32 g/mol)
= 384 g/L

Note: K for the above reaction is written as

[ H 2O(l ) ]6 [CO2 ( g ) ]6

In-Class Exercise (Example 2.9)
Find the solubility of fluoride ions in water caused by the
dissolution of CaF2.

Solution
CaF2 (s)

Ca 2+ (aq) + 2F-(aq)

Ksp=[Ca2+][F-]2= 3x10-11
Assume [Ca] = s

[F]= 2s

(s)(2s)2=3x10-11
s= 2x10-4 mol/L
[F]= 2(2x10-4)= 4x10-4 mol/L
= (4x10-4 mol/L) (19 g/mol) (103 mg/g) = 7.6mg/L
