Ch 35: Chemical Reactions, Rate Laws & Constants

About This Chapter

You don't have to struggle through chemical rate laws, constants and reactions when you have help from this informative chapter. Our lessons make these subjects easy to understand as you work to prepare for an important exam or catch up after missing class.

Chemical Reactions, Rate Laws & Constants - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, you'll find short lessons that thoroughly outline chemical constants, reactions and rate laws. Just a few of the subjects covered in our video lessons include the modifying factors in the rate of a chemical reaction and reaction mechanisms. Feel free to access these lessons on any smartphone, tablet or computer and work through as few or as many of these resources as needed. We've created this chapter to help you achieve the following objectives:

  • Identify the effects of temperature on the rate of a chemical reaction
  • Outline rate constant and rate laws
  • Explain reaction mechanisms and the rate determining step
  • Use graphs to determine rate constants, rate laws and reaction orders
  • Determine rate laws constant, reaction order and rate equation from experimental data
  • Calculate radioactive decay and interpret decay graphs
  • Define activation energy and catalysts
