(a) 10 s
(b) 5 min
(c) 20 min
(d) cannot be predicted using the given information
Answer:
(c) 20 min
Solutions:

Given,
[A0] = 0.02 M ; t1/2 = 10 min
[A0] = 0.04 M ; t1/2 = ?
Substitute in (1)
10 min ? 0.02 M ……………………..(2)
t1/2 ∝ 0.04 M ……………………..(3)
Dividing Eq.(3) by Eq. (2) we get,
$$\frac { { t }^{ 1/2 } }{ 10min }$$ = $$\frac { 0.04M }{ 0.02M }$$
t1/2 = 2 x 10 min = 20 min

II . Answer the following questions:

Question 1.
Define average rate and instantaneous rate.
Answer:
1. Average rate:
The average rate of a reaction is defined as the rate of change of concentration of a reactant (or of a product) over a specified measurable period of time.

2. insantaneous rate:
Instantaneous rate of reaction gives the tendency of the reaction at a particular point of time during its course (or) The time derivative of the concentration of a reactant (or product) converted to a positive number is called the instantaneous rate of reaction.

Question 2.
Define rate law and rate constant.
1. Rate law:
The expression in which reaction rate is given in terms of molar concentration of the reactants with each term raised to some power, which may or may not be same as the Stoichiometric coefficient of the reacting species in a balanced chemical equation.
x A + y B → products
Rate = k [A]m [B]m
k = Rate constant

2. Rate constant:
For a reaction involving the reactants A and B, Reaction rate = k [A]m [B]m The constant k is called rate constant of the reaction. If [A] = 1 M and [B] = 1 M; Reaction rate = k Thus, the rate constant (k) of a reaction is equal to the rate of reaction when the concentration of each reactant is equal to 1 mol L-1. The change in the concentration of reactant or product per unit time under the condition of unit concentration of all the reactant.

Question 3.
Derive integrated rate law for a zero order reaction A product. A reaction in which the rate is independent of the concentration of the reactant over a wide range of concentrations is called as zero order reactions. Such reactions are rare. Let us consider the following hypothetical zero order reaction.
A → Product
The rate law can be written
Rate = k [A]°
(∴[A]° = 1)
– d [A] k (l)
$$\frac { -d[A] }{ dt }$$ = k(1)
-d[A] = k dt
Integrate the above equation between the limits of [A0] at zero time and [A] at some later time ‘t’,

Question 4.
Define half life of a reaction. Show that for a first order reaction half life is independent of Initial concentration.
Answer:
Half life of a reaction is defined as the time required for the reactant concentration to reach one half of its initial value. For a first order reaction, the half life is a constant i.e., it does not depend on the initial concentration. The rate constant for a first order reaction is given by,

Question 5.
What is an elementary reaction? Give the differences between order and molecularity of a reaction.
Answer:
Elementary reaction – Each and every single step in a reaction mechanism is called an elementary reaction. Differences between order and molecularity:
Order of a reaction:

1. It is the sum of the powers of concentration terms involved in the experimentally determined rate law.
2. It can be zero (or) fractional (or) integer.
3. It is assigned for a overall reaction.

Molecularity of a reaction:

1. It is the total number of reactant species that are involved in an elementary step.
2. It is always a whole number, cannot be zero or a fractional number.
3. It is assigned for each elementary step of mechanism.

Question 6.
Explain the rate determining step with an example.
Answer:
1. Most of the chemical reactions occur by multistep reactions. In the sequence of steps it is found that one of the steps is considerably slower than the others. The overall rate of the reaction cannot be lower in value than the rate of the slowest step.

2. Thus in a multistep reaction the experimentally determined rate corresponds to the rate of the slowest step. The step which has the lowest rate value among the other steps of the reaction is called as the rate determining step (or) rate limiting step.

3. Consider the reaction,
2A + B → C + D
going by two steps as follows,

Here the overall rate of the reaction corresponds to the rate of the first step which is the slow step and thus the first step is called as the rate determining step of the reaction. In the above equation, the rate of the reaction depends upon the rate constant k ( only. The rate of second step dosn’t contribute experimentally determined overall rate of the reaction.
For example,
NO2(g) + CO2(g) → NO(g) + CO2(g)
Which occurs in two elementary steps:

• NO2 + NO2 → NO + NO3 (Slow)
• NO3+ CO → NO2 + CO2 (fast)

Because the first step is the lowest step, the overall reaction cannot proceed any faster than the rate of the first elementary step. The first elementary step in this example is therefore the rate determining step.

The rate equation for this reaction is equal to the rate is constant of step-1 multiplied by the reactants of that first step. If the rate constant of step-1 is denoted as k1 then the rate of the first step in the reaction (and the total reaction) will be,
Rate = k, [NO2] [NO2]
= k1 [NO2]2

Question 7.
Describe the graphical representation of first order reaction.
Answer:
Rate constant for first order reaction is,
kt = ln$$\left( \frac { \left[ { A }_{ 0 } \right] }{ \left[ A \right] } \right)$$
kt = In [A0] – In [A]
In[A] = In [A0] – kty = c + mx
If we follow the reaction by measuring the concentration of the reactants at regular time interval ‘t’, a plot of ln[A] against ‘t’ yields a straight line with a negative slope. From this, the rate constant is calculated.

Question 8.
Write the rate law for the following reactions.

1. A reaction that is 3/2 order in x and zero order in y.
2. A reaction that is second order in NO and first order in Br2.

Answer:
1. $$\frac { 3 }{ 2 }$$ x + y (excess) → products
– $$\frac { 3 }{ 2 }$$ $$\frac { d[x] }{ dt }$$ = k [x]3/2

2. 2NO + Br2 → products
– $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ $$\frac { d[NO] }{ dt }$$ = k [NO]2 [Br2]

Question 9.
Explain the effect of catalyst on reaction rate with an example.
Answer:

1. Significant changes in the reaction can be brought out by the addition of a substance called catalyst.
2. A catalyst is substance which alters the rate of a reaction without itself undergoing any permanent chemical change.
3. They may participate in the reaction, but again regenerated and the end of the reaction.
4. In the presence of a catalyst, the energy of activation is lowered and hence, greater number of molecules can cross the energy barrier and change over to products, thereby increasing the rate of the reaction.
5. For example, decomposition of potassium chlorate is enhanced by addition of MnO2.

2KClO3 $$\frac{\mathrm{MnO}_{4}}{\Delta} 2 \mathrm{KCl}$$ + 3O2 (MnO2 – Catalyst)

Question 10.
The rate law for a reaction of A, B and C has been found to be rate = k[A]2 [B][L]3/2. How would the rate of reaction change when

1. Concentration of [L] is quadrupled
2. Concentration of both [A] and [B] are doubled
3. Concentration of [A] is halved
4. Concentration of [A] is reduced to(1/3) and concentration of [L] is quadrupled.

Solution:
Rate = k [A]2 [B] [L]3/2 ………….(1)
1. when [L] = [4L]
Rate = k [A]2 [B] [4L]3/2
Rate = 8 (k[A]2 [B] [L]3/2) …………………..(2)
Comparing (1) and (3) rate is increased by 8 times.

2. when [A] = [2A] and [B] = [2B]
Rate = k[2A]2 [2B ] [L]3/2
Rate = 8 (k[A]2 [B] [L]3/2 …………….(3)
Comparing (1) and (3); rate is increased by 8 times.

3. when [A] = $$[\frac { A }{ 2 }]$$
Rate = k $$[\frac { A }{ 2 }]$$2 [L]$$\frac { 3 }{ 2 }$$
Rate = $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ (k[A]2 [B] [L]3/2) ……………..(4)
Comparing (1) and ( 4); rate is reduced to $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ times.

4. when [A] = $$[\frac { A }{ 3 }]$$ and [L] = [4L]
Rate k$$\frac { A }{ 3 }$$2 [B] [4L]3/2
Rate = $$[\frac { 8 }{ 9 }]$$ (k[A]2 [B] [L]3/2) ……………….(5)
Comparing (1) and (5); rate is reduced to 8/9 times.

Question 11.
The rate of formation of a dimer in a second order reaction is 7.5 x 10-3 mol L-1s-1 at 0.05 mol L-1 monomer concentration. Calculate the rate constant.
Solution:
Let us consider the dimensation of a monomer M
2M → (M)2
Rate = k [M]n
Given that n =2 and [M] = 0.05 mol L-1
Rate = 7.5 x 10-3 mol L-1s-1
Rate 7.5 x 103 mol L-1 s-1
k = $$\frac { Rate }{ { \left[ M \right] }^{ n } }$$
k= =$$\frac { 7.5\times { 10 }^{ -3 } }{ { \left( 0.05 \right) }^{ 2 } }$$ = 3 mol-1 Ls-1

Question 12.
For a reaction x +y + z → products, the rate law is given by rate = k [x]3/2 [y]1/2 what is the overall order of the reaction and what is the order of the reaction with respect to z.
Solution:
Rate = k [x]3/2 [y]1/2
overall order = $$\left( \frac { 3 }{ 2 } +\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \right)$$ = 2
i.e., second order reaction.
Since the rate expression does not contain the concentration of Z , the reaction is zero order with respect to Z.

Question 13.
Explain briefly the collision theory of bimolecular reactions.
Answer:
Collision theory is based on the kinetic theory of gases. According to this theory, chemical reactions occur as a result of collisions between the reacting molecules. Let us understand this theory by considering the following reaction.
A2(g) + B2(g) → 2AB(g)

If we consider that, the reaction between A2 and B2 molecules proceeds through collisions between them, then the rate would be proportional to the number of collisions per second. Rate ix Number of molecules colliding per litre per second (or) Rate ∝ Collision rate. The number of collisions is directly proportional to the concentration of both A2 and B2.
Collision rate ∝ [A2] [B2] …………………(1)
Collision rate = Z [A2] [B2] ……………………..(2)
Where, Z is a constant.

The collision rate ¡n gases can be calculated from kinetic theory of gases. For a gas at room temperature (298K) and 1 atm pressure, each molecule undergoes approximately 109 collisions per second, i.e., I collision in 109 second. Thus, if every collision resulted in reaction, the reaction would be complete in 109 second.

In actual practice this does not happen. It implies that all collisions are not effective to lead to the reaction. In order to react, the colliding molecules must possess a minimum energy called activation energy. The molecules that collide with less energy than activation energy will remain intact and no reaction occurs.

Fraction of effective collisions (f) is given by the following expression, $${ e }^{ \frac { { -E }_{ a } }{ RT } }$$
Fraction of collisions is further reduced due to orientation factor i.e., even if the reactant collide with sufficient energy, they will not react unless the orientation of the reactant molecules is suitable for the formation of the transition state. The fraction of effective collisions (f) having proper orientation is given by the steric factor P.

Rate = P x f x collision rate
Rate= P x $${ e }^{ \frac { { -E }_{ a } }{ RT } }$$ x Z [A2] [B2] ……..(1)
As per the rate law, Rate = k [A2] [B2] ………………….(2)
Where k is the rate constant
On comparing equation (1) and (2), the rate constant k is,
k = p Z $${ e }^{ \frac { { -E }_{ a } }{ RT } }$$

Question 14.

k = A$${ e }^{ \frac { { -E }_{ a } }{ RT } }$$
A = Arrhenius factor (frequency factor)

Ea = Activation energy
T = Absolute temperature (in K)

Question.15.
The decomposition of Cl2O7 at 500K in the gas phase to Cl2 and O2 is a first order reaction. After 1 minute at 500K, the pressure of Cl2O7 falls from 0.08 to 0.04 atm. Calculate the rate constant in s-1.
Answer:
Solution:
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ t }$$ log $$\frac{\left[\mathrm{A}_{0}\right]}{[\mathrm{A}]}$$
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 1 min }$$ log $$\frac { [0.08] }{ [0.04] }$$
k = 2.303 log 2
k = 2.303 x 0.3010
k = 0.693 2 min-1
k = $$(\frac { 0.6932 }{ 60 })$$ s-1
k = 1.153 x 10-2 s-1

Question 16.

Answer:
Examples for a zero order reaction:
1. Photochemical reaction between H2 and Cl
H2(g) + Cl2(g) $$\underrightarrow { h\nu }$$ 2HCI(g)

2. Decomposition of N2O on hot platinum surface
N2 O(g) $$\rightleftharpoons$$ N2(g) + $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ O2(g)

3. lodination of acetone in acid medium is zero order with respect to iodine.
CH3COCH3 + I2 $$\underrightarrow { { H }^{ + } }$$ ICH2COCH3 + HI
Rate k [CH3COCI3] [H+]

Question 17.
Explain pseudo first order reaction with an example.
Answer:
A second order reaction can be altered to a first order reaction by taking one of the reactant in large excess, such reaction is called pseudo first order reaction. Let us consider the acid hydrolysis of an ester,
CH3COOCH3(aq) +H2 O(1) $$\underrightarrow { { H }^{ + } }$$ CH3COOH(aq) + CH3OH(aq)
Rate = k [CH3COOCH3] [H2O]

If the reaction is carried out with the large excess of water, there is no significant change in the concentration of water during hydrolysis. i.e., concentration of water remains almost a constant. Now we can define k [H2O] = k
∴ The above rate equation becomes
Rate k [CHCOOCH] Thus it follows first order kinetics.

1.20 = k [0.4]n [0.08]m ……………… (3)
Dividing Eq(3) by Eq (2) we get

Question 21.
How do concentrations of the reactant influence the rate of reaction?
Answer:
The rate of a reaction increases with the increase in the concentration of the reactants. The effect of concentration is explained on the basis of collision theory of reaction rates.

According to this theory, the rate of a reaction depends upon the number of collisions between the reacting molecules. Higher the concentration, greater is the possibility for collision and hence the rate.

Question 22.
How do nature of the reactant influence rate of reaction?
Answer:
Nature and state of the reactant:
We know that a chemical reaction involves breaking of certain existing bonds of the reactant and forming new bonds which lead to the product.

The net energy involved in this process is dependent on the nature of the reactant and hence the rates arc different for different reactants. Let us compare the following two reactions that we carried out in volumetric analysis.

1. Redox reaction between ferrous ammonium sulphate (FAS) and KMnO4
2. Redox reaction between oxalic acid and KMnO4

The oxidation of oxalate ion by KMnO4 is relatively slow compared to the reaction between KMnO4 and Fe . In fact heating is required for the reaction between KMnO4 and Oxalate ion and is carried out at around 60°C. The physical state of the reactant also plays an important role to influence the rate of reactions. Gas phase reactions are faster as compared to the reactions involving solid or liquid reactants.

For example, reaction of sodium metal with iodine vapours is faster than the reaction between solid sodium and solid iodine. Let us consider another example that we carried out in inorganic qualitative analysis of lead salts.

If we mix the aqueous solution of colorless potassium iodide with the colorless solution of lead nitrate, precipitation of yellow lead iodide take place instantancously, whereas if we mix the solid lead nitrate with solid potassium iodide, yellow coloration will appear slowly.

Question 23.
The rate constant for a first order reaction is 1.54 x 10 s-1. Calculate its half life time.
Answer:
We know that, t, 0.693 k
t1/2 = 0.693/1.54 x 1o-3 = 450 s

Question 24.
The half life of the homogeneous gaseous reaction SO2CI2 → SO2 + Cl2 which obeys first order kinetics Is 8.0 minutes. How long will it take for the concentration of SO2Cl2 to be reduced to 1% of the initial value?
Answer:
We know that, k = 0.693/ t1/2
k = 0.693/8.0 minutes = 0.087 minutes -1
For a first order reaction,
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ k }$$ log $$\left( \frac { \left[ { A }_{ 0 } \right] }{ \left[ A \right] } \right)$$
t = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 0.087{ min }^{ -1 } }$$ log$$\frac { 100 }{ 1 }$$
t = 52.93 mm

Question 25.
The time for half change in a first order decomposition of a substance A is 60 seconds. Calculate the rate constant. How much of A will be left after 180 seconds?
Answer:
1. Order of a reaction = 1
t1/2 = 60
seconds, k = ?
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 60 }$$
We know that, k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ { t }_{ 1/2 } }$$
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 60 }$$ = 0.01155 s-1

2. [A0] = 100%
t = 180 s
k = 0.01155 seconds-1
[A] = ?
For the first order reaction k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 60 }$$ log $$\left( \frac { \left[ { A }_{ 0 } \right] }{ \left[ A \right] } \right)$$
0.9207 = log 100 – log [A]
log [A] = log 100 – 0.9207
log [A] = 2 – 0.9207
log[A] = 1.0973
[A] = antilog of (1.0973)
[A] = l2.5%

Question 26.
A zero order reaction is 20% complete in 20 minutes. Calculate the value of the rate constant. In what time will the reaction be 80% complete?
Answer:
1. A = 100%, x = 20%, Therefore, a – x =100 – 20 = 80
For the zero order reaction k= $$(\frac { x }{ t })$$ ⇒
k = $$(\frac { 20 }{ 20 })$$ = 1
Rate constant for a reaction = 1

2. To calculate the time for 80% of completion
k = 1, a = l00, x = 80%, t = ?
Therefore, t = $$(\frac { x }{ k })$$ = $$(\frac { 80 }{ 1 })$$ = 80 min

Question 27.
The activation energy of a reaction is 225 k cal mol-1 and the value of rate constant at 40°C is 1.8 x 10-5 s-1. Calculate the frequency factor, A. Here, we arc given that
Answer:
Ea = 22.5 kcal mol-1 = 22500 cal mol-1
T = 40°C = 40 + 273 = 313 K
k = 1.8 x 10-5 sec-1
Substituting the values in the equation
log A = log k + $$\left( \frac { { E }_{ a } }{ 2.303RT } \right)$$
log A = log (l .8 x 10-5) + $$\left( \frac { 22500 }{ 2.303\times 1.987\times 313 } \right)$$
log A = log (l.8) – 5 + (15.7089)
log A = (10.9642)
A = antilog ( 10.9642)
A = 9.208 x 1010 collisions s-1

Question 28.
Benzene diazonium chloride in aqueous solution decomposes according to the equation
C6H5N2CI C6H5CI + N2. Starting with an initial concentration of 10 g L-1 volume of N2. gas obtained at 50°C at different intervals of time was found to be as under:

Show that the above reaction follows the first order kinetics. What is the value of the rate constant ?
Solution:
For a first order reaction
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ t }$$ log $$\frac { a }{ (a-x) }$$
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ t }$$ log $$\frac { { V }_{ \infty } }{ { V }_{ \infty }-{ V }_{ t } }$$
In this case, V = 58.3 ml
The value of k at different time can be calculated as follows:

Since the value of k comes out to be nearly constant, the given reaction is of the first order. The mean value of k = 0.0674 min-1

Question 29.
From the following data, show that the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide is a reaction of the first order:

Where t is the volume of standard KMnO4 solution required for titrating the same volume of the reaction mixture.
Solution:
Volume of KMnO4 solution used Amount of H2O2 present. Hence if the given reaction is of the first order, it must obey the equation
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ t }$$ log $$\frac { a }{ (a-x) }$$
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ t }$$ log $$\frac { { V }_{ 0 } }{ { V }_{ t } }$$
In this case,V0 = 46.1 ml
The value of k at each instant can be calculated as follows:

Thus, the value of k comes out to be nearly constant. Hence it is a reaction of the first order.

Question 30.
A first order reaction is 40% complete in 50 minutes. Calculate the value of the rate constant. in what time will the reaction be 80% complete?
Answer:
1. For the first order reaction k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ t }$$ log $$\frac { a }{ (a-x) }$$
Assume, a = 100 %, x = 40%, t = 50 minutes
Therefore, a – x = 100 – 40 = 60
k = (2.303/50) log (100/60)
k = 0.010216 min-1
Hence the value of the rate constant is 0.010216 min-1

2. t = ?, when x = 8O%
Therefore, a – x = 100 – 80 = 20
From above, k = 0.0102 16 min-1
t = (2.303 / 0.010216) log (100 / 20)
t = 157.58 min
The time at which the reaction will be 80% complete is 157.58 min.

Solution:
2N2O5(g) → 4NO2(g) + O2(g)
from the stoichiometry of the reaction.
– $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ $$\frac { d[{ N }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 5 }] }{ dt }$$
= $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ $$\frac { d[{ N }{ O }_{ 2 }] }{ dt }$$
= –$$\frac { d[{ N }{ O }_{ 2 }] }{ dt }$$
= 2 –$$\frac { d[{ N }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 5 }] }{ dt }$$
Rate of disappearance of N2O5 is 2.5 x 10-2 mol dm-3 s-1
∴ The rate of formation of NO2 at this temperature is 2 x 2.5 x 10-2 = 5 x 10-2 mol dm-3 s-1.
– $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ $$\frac { d[{ N }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 5 }] }{ dt }$$
= – $$\frac { d[{ O }_{ 2 }] }{ dt }$$
∴ $$\frac { d[{ O }_{ 2 }] }{ dt }$$ = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ x 2.5 x 10-2 mol dm-3 s-1

⇒ 22 = 2m
∴m = 2
Therefore the reaction is secondary order with respect to NO.
Dividing Eq (3) by Eq (2) we get,

Therefore the reaction is first order with respect to Cl2
The rate law is, Rate = k [NO]2 [Cl2]1
The overall order of the reaction (2 +1) = 3.

k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 40min }$$ log $$\frac { 100 }{ (100-60) }$$
k = 0.0575 (0.3979) ⇒ k = 0.02287 min-1
t1/2 = $$\frac { 0.6932 }{ k }$$ log $$\frac { 0.6932 }{ 0.02287 }$$
t1/2 = 30.31 min.

Concentration will remain after 1 hour [A] =7
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ t }$$ log $$\frac{\left[\mathrm{A}_{0}\right]}{[\mathrm{A}]}$$
2.3 x 10-4 = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 1 hour }$$ log $$\frac { [0.01] }{ [A] }$$
$$\frac { 2.3\times { 10 }^{ -4 }\times 1 }{ 2.303 }$$ = log [0.01] – log[A]
9.986 x 10-5 = – 2 – log [A]

[A] = Antilog (-11.986 x 10-5)
[A] = 0.997 M

Series of experiments are conducted by keeping the concentration of one of the reactants constant and the changing the concentration of the others.

Find out the individual overall order of the reaction.
Solution:
Rate = k [NO]m [O2]n
For experiment 1, the rate law is
Rate2 = k [NO]m [O2]n
19.26 x 10-2 = k[1.3]m [1.1]n ………………(1)
Similarly for experiment 2

38.40 x 10-2 = k [1.3]m [2.2]n …………………..(2)
For experiment 3
Rate3 = k [NO]m [O2]n
76.8 x 10-2 = k [2.6]m [1.1]n ……….(3)
Dividing Eq (2) by Eq (1)
$$\frac { 38.40\times { 10 }^{ -2 } }{ 19.26\times { 10 }^{ -2 } }$$ = $$\frac { k{ \left[ 1.3 \right] }^{ m }{ \left[ 2.2 \right] }^{ n } }{ k{ \left[ 1.3 \right] }^{ m }{ \left[ 1.1 \right] }^{ n } }$$
2 = $${ \left( \frac { 2.2 }{ 1.1 } \right) }^{ n }$$
2 = 2n
i.e., n= 1
Therefore the reaction is first order with respect to O2
Dividing Eq (3) byEq (1)
$$\frac { 76.8\times { 10 }^{ -2 } }{ 19.26\times { 10 }^{ -2 } }$$ = $$\frac { k{ \left[ 2.6 \right] }^{ m }{ \left[ 1.1 \right] }^{ n } }{ k{ \left[ 1.3 \right] }^{ m }{ \left[ 1.1 \right] }^{ n } }$$
4 = $${ \left( \frac { 2.6 }{ 1.3 } \right) }^{ m }$$
4 = 2m

Question 5.
A first order reaction takes 8 hours for 90% completion. Calculate the time required for 80% completion. (log 5 = 0.6989; log10 = 1)
Solution:
For a first order reaction,

Let [A0] = 100M
When
t = t90%; [A] = 10M (given that t90% = 8 hours)
t = t80%; [A] = 20M

Find the value of k using the given data
k = $$\frac{2.303}{t_{90 \%}}$$ log $$(\frac { 100 }{ 10 })$$
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 8 hours }$$ log 10
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 8 hours }$$ (1)
Substitute the value of k in equation (2)
t80% = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 2.303/8 hours }$$ log (5)
t80% = 8 hours x 0.6989
t80% = 5.59 hours

Question 4.
Define Half life period.
Answer:
The half life ola reaction is defined as the time required for the reactant concentration to reach one half its initial value.

Question 5.
Mention the factors affecting the reaction rate.
Answer:
The rate of the reaction is affected by the following factors.

1. Nature and state of the reactant
2. Concentration of the reactant
3. Surface area of the reactant
4. Temperature of the reaction
5. Presence of a catalyst

Question 6.
How is surface area of the reactant affect the rate of the reaction?
Answer:

1. In heterogeneous reactions, the surface area of the solid reactants play an important role in deciding the rate.
2. For a given mass of a reactant, when the particle size decreases surface area increases. Increase in surface area of reactant leads to more collisions per litre per second and hence the rate of reaction is increased.
3. For example, powdered calcium carbonate reacts much faster with dilute HCl than with the same mass of CaCO3 as marble.

Question 7.
Paracetamol is prescribed to take once in 6 hours. Justify this statement.
Answer:
1. Paracetamol is a well known antipyretic and analgesic that is prescribed in cases of fever and body pain.

2. Paracetamol has a half life of 2.5 hours within the body. (Le) the plasma concentration of the drug is halved after 2.5 hours. So after 10 hours (4 half lives), only 6.25% of drug remains. Based on this, the dosage and frequency will be decided.

3. In the case of paracetamol, it is usually prescribed to take once in 6 hours.

Question 8.
For a reaction, A + B → product; the rate law is given by r = k[A]1/2 [B]2. What is the order of the reaction?
Answer:
Order of the reaction = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ + 2 = 2 $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ or 0.5

Question 9.
The conversion of molecules X to Y follows second order kinetics. If concentration of X is increased to three times how will ¡t affect the rate of formation of Y?
Answer:
For the reaction, X → Y as it follows second order kinetics, therefore the rate law equation will be
Rate = k[X]2 = ka2
if [X] = a mol-1
if the concentration of X is increased three times, then
[X] = 3a mol L-1
∴ Rate = k (3a)2 = 9 ka2
Thus, the rate of the reaction will become 9 times. Hence the rate of formation of Y will increase by 9 times.

Question 6.
Time required to decompose SO2CI2 to half of its initial amount is 60 minutes. If the decomposition is a first order reaction, calculate the rate constant of the reaction. For a first order reaction,
Answer:

Question 7.
A reaction is second order with respect to a reactant. How is the rate of reaction affected if the concentration of the reactant is-

1. doubled
2. reduced to half.

Answer:
1. Reaction is second order with respect to the reactant
∴ Rate = k[A]2 = ka2.
when [A] = 2a
Rate k (2a)2
= 4ka2
= 4 times
Therefore, when concentration of the reactant is doubled the rate will become 4 times

2. when [A] = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ a
Rate = k $${ \left( \frac { 1 }{ 2 } a \right) }^{ 2 }$$ = $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ ka2 = $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ k
Therefore, rate will be reduced to one-fourth of the initial rate.

Question 8.
The rate constant for a first order reaction is 60 s1. How much time will It take to reduce the initial concentration of the reactant to its 1/6th value?
Answer:

Question 9.
For a first order reaction, show that time required for 99% completion is twice the time required for the completion of 90% of reaction.
Answer:
For a first order reaction, t = k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ t }$$ log $$\frac { a }{ a-x }$$
99% completion means that
x = 99% of a =0.99 a
t99% = $$\frac { 2303 }{ k }$$ log $$\frac { a }{ a-0.99a }$$ = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ k }$$ log 102 = 2 x $$\frac { 2303 }{ k }$$
90% completion means that
x = 90% of a = 0.90 a
t99% = $$\frac { 2303 }{ k }$$ log $$\frac { a }{ a-0.99a }$$ = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ k }$$ log 10 = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ k }$$
$$\frac{t_{99 \%}}{t_{90 \%}}=\left(\frac{2 \times 2303}{k}\right) / \frac{2.303}{k}=2$$
or
t99% = 2 x t90%

Question 10.
Calculate the half life of a first order reaction whose rate constant is 200 s-1
Answer:
Here rate constant
k= 200 s-1
∴ Half – life of a first order reaction is
t1/2 = $$\frac { 0.693 }{ k }$$ = $$\frac { 0.693 }{ 200 }$$ = 3.46 x 10-3 sec

Question 11.
The decomposition of dinitrogen pentoxide (N2O) follows the first order rate law. Calculate the rate constant from the given data.
t = 800 sec, [N2O5] = 1.45 moI L-1 = [A2]
t = 1600 sec
[N2O3] = 0.88 moI L-1 = [A2]
Answer:
Applying the formula,
k = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ \left( { t }_{ 2 }-{ t }_{ 1 } \right) }$$ log 10 $$\frac { \left[ { A }_{ 1 } \right] }{ \left[ { A }_{ 2 } \right] }$$
= $$\frac { 2.303 }{ (1600 – 800) }$$ log 10 $$\frac { 1.45 }{ 0.88 }$$ = $$\frac { 2.303 }{ 800 }$$ x 0.2169
= 6.24 x 10-4 sec-1

Question 12.
A second order reaction in which both the reactants have same concentration, is 20% completed in 500 seconds. How much time it will take for 60% completion?
Answer:
The second order equation when both the reactants have same concentration is
k = $$\frac { 1 }{ t }$$. $$\frac { x }{ a(a – x) }$$
If a = 100, x = 20, 1= 500 seconds
Then k = $$\frac { 1 }{ 500 }$$ x $$\frac { 20 }{ 100 x (100-20) }$$
When
a = 100
x = 60
t = ?
t = $$\frac { 1 }{ k }$$ $$\frac { 60 }{ 100 x 40 }$$
Substituting the value of k,
t = $$\frac { 500 x 100 x 80 }{ 20 }$$ x $$\frac { 60 }{ 100 x 40 }$$
or
t = 3000 seconds

Question 13.
A first order reaction is 20% completed in 10 minutes. Calculate the time taken for the reaction to go to 80% completion.
Answer:
Applying the first order equation,
k = $$\frac { 2303 }{ t }$$ l0g $$\frac { { \left[ R \right] }_{ 0 } }{ \left[ R \right] }$$
At t = 10 min
R = 100 – 20
k = $$\frac { 2303 }{ t }$$ log 10 $$\frac { 100 }{ (100 – 20) }$$
t = $$\frac { 2303 }{ 10 }$$ log 10 $$\frac { 100 }{ 80 }$$
= 0.0223 min-1

Samacheer Kalvi 12th Chemistry Chemical Kinetics Elements 5 Marks Questions and Answers

Question 1.
How would you calculate the order of the reaction 2NO + O2(g) → 2NO2(g) by an experiment?
(or)
prove that 2NO + O2 → 2 NO2 is a third order reaction.
Answer:
2NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g)
Series of experiments are conducted by keeping the concentration of one of the reactants as constant and changing the concentration of the others.

Rate = k [NO]m[O2]n
For experiment 1, the rate law is
Rate1 = k [NO]m [O2]n
19.26 x 10-2 = k [1.3]m [1.1]n ………………….(1)
For experiment 2
Rate2 = k [NO]m [O2]n
38.40 x 10-2 = k [1.3]m [2.2]n ……………….(2)
For experiment 3
Rate3 = k [NO]m [O2]n
76.8 x 10-2 = k [2.6]m [1.1]n ………………(3)

2 = $${ \left( \frac { 2.2 }{ 1.1 } \right) }^{ n }$$
4 = 2m
⇒ n = 1
Therefore the reaction is first order with respect to O2

2 = $${ \left( \frac { 2.6 }{ 1.3 } \right) }^{ m }$$
4 = 2m
⇒ m = 1
Therefore the reaction is second order with respect to NO
The rate law is Rate = k [NO]2 [O2]1
The overall order of the reaction = 2 + 1 = 3

Question 2.
Derive the integrated rate law for a first order reaction?
Answer:
A reaction whose rate depends on the reactant concentration raised to the first power is called a first order reaction. First order reaction is A → product. Rate law can be expressed as, Rate = k [A]1. Where, k is the first order rate constant
$$\frac { -d[A] }{ dt }$$ = k[A]1
$$\frac { -d[A] }{ [A] }$$ = k.dt ……………………(1)
Integrate the above equation (I) between the limits of time t = 0 and time equal to t, while the concentration varies from initial concentration [A0] to [A] at the later time.

This equation (2) is in natural logarithm. To convert it into usual logarithm with base 10, we have to multiply the term by 2.303

Question 3.
Explain the effect of temperature on reaction rate based on Arrhenius theory.
Answer:
1. Generally, the rate of a reaction increases with increasing temperature. However, there are very few exceptions.

2. As a rough rule, for many reactions near room temperature, reaction rate tends to double when the temperature is increased by 10°C.

3. A large number of reactions are known which do not take place at room temperature but occur readily at higher temperature. Example – Reaction between H2 and O2 to form H2O takes place only when an electric spark is passed.

4. Arrhenius suggested that the rates of most reactions vary with temperature in such a way that the rate constant is directly proportional to
and he proposed a relation between the rate constant and temperature.

where
k = frequency factor
R = gas constant ,
Ea = Activation energy
T = Absolute temperature (in kelvin)
The factor A does not vary significantly with temperature and hence it may be taken as a constant.

5. Taking logarithm on both side of the equation (1)

6. The plot of Ink vs $$(\frac { 1 }{ T })$$ is a straight line with negative slope$$\frac { { E }_{ a } }{ RT }$$. If the rate constant for a reaction at two different temperatures is known, we can calculate the activation energy.

This equation can be used to calculate E from rate Ea constants k1 & k2 at temperature T1 and T2

Question 4.
Explain about the factors that affecting the reaction rate.
Answer:
The rate of a reaction is affected by the following factors.
1. Nature and state of the reactant
(a) A chemical reaction involves breaking of certain existing bonds of the reactant and forming new bonds which lead to the product. The net energy involved in this process is dependent on the nature of the reactant and hence the rates are different for different reactants.

(b) Gas phase reactions are faster as compared to the reactions involving solid or liquid reactants. For example, reaction of sodium metal with iodine vapours is faster than the reaction between solid sodium and solid iodine.

2. Concentration of the reactant
The rate of the reaction increases with the increase in the concentration of the reactants. According to collision theory, the rate of the reaction depends upon the number of collisions between the reacting molecules. Higher the concentration, greater is the possibility for collision and hence the rate.

3. Effect of surface area of the reactant:
In heterogeneous reactions, the surface areas of the solid reactants plays an important role in deciding the rate. For a given mass of a reactant, when the particle size decreases surface area increases.

Increase in surface area of reactant leads to more collisions per litre per second and hence the rate of reaction is increased. For example, powdered calcium carbonate reacts much faster with dilute HCI than with the same mass of CaCOl as marble

4. Temperature:
For many reactions near room temperature, the reaction rate tends to double when the temperature is increased by 10°C . For eg, Reaction between H2 and O2 to form H2O take place only when an electric spark is passed. So when the temperature increases, the rate of the reaction also increases.

5. Effect of presence of catalyst
(a) A catalyst is substance which alters the rate of a reaction without itself undergoing any permanent chemical change. They may participate in the reaction, but again regenerated and the end of the reaction.

(b) In the presence of a catalyst, the energy of activation is lowered and hence greater number of molecules can cross the energy barrier and change over to products,thereby increasing the rate of the reaction.

Question 5.
The decomposition of A into product has value of k as 4.5 x 103 s-1 at 10°C and energy of activation 60 kJ mol-1. At what temperature would k be 1.5 x 104 s-1 ?
Answer:
k1 = 4.5 x 103 s-1
T1 = 10 + 273 K = 283 K
k2 = 1.5 x 104 s-1
T2 = ?
Ea = 6o kJ mol-1
According to Arrhenius equation

Question 6.
For a decomposition reaction the values of rate constant k at two different temperatures are given below:
k1 = 2.15 x 10 L mol-1 s-1 at 650 K
k2 = 2.39 x 10 L mol-1 s-1 at 700 K
Calculate the value of activation energy for this reaction. (R = 8.314 J K-1 mol-1 )
Answer:
Here
k1 = 2.15 x 10 L mol-1 s-1 at 650 K
T1 = 650 K
T2 = 700K and
k2 = 2.39 x 10 L mol-1 s-1 at 700 K
R = 8.314 J K-1 mol-1
Using the formula

1. What is the initial rate?
2. What ¡s the reaction rate after 1 minute?

Answer:

1. Initial rate of a first order reaction
= k C
= l x 10-2 x 1.0
= l x 10-2 mol L-1 s-1

2. Concentration after 60 seconds is calculated by applying the first order kinetic equation,

Rate of reaction after 1 minute
= k x C
= l x 10-2 x 0.5489
5.489 x 10-3 mol L-1 s-1

Question 9.

Answer:
For a first order reaction

Now applying the following equation:

Question 10.
In Arrhenius equation for a certain reaction, the values of A and E (activation energy) are 4 x 1013 sec-1 and 98.6 KJ mol-1 respectively. If the reaction is of first order, at what temperature will its half life period be 10 minutes?
Answer:
According to the Arrhenius equation.

For a first order reaction
t1/2 = $$\frac { 0.693 }{ k }$$ $$\frac { 0.693 }{ 600 }$$
So,
k = $$\frac { 0.693 }{ 600 }$$ sec-1 (t1/2 = 10 min = 600 sec)
= 1.1 x 10-3 sec-1
Hence, log (1.1 x 10-3)

Common Errors

Common Errors:

1. Order and molecularity may get confused
2. Unit of first order Rate constant and zero order may get con fused.
3. t1/2 – Half liefe period may be difficult to remember

Rectifications:

1. Order and molecularity are same for the single step process. But for reactions of more than one step, they may be different.
2. First order sec-1, Zero order – mol litre-1 sec-1
3. t1/2 = 0.693 / k1 for first order reaction.
