Chapter 17: Reaction Kinetics

Introduction

Reaction Kinetics – explanation of chemical kinetics.

(Main Idea: Molecular collisions need the right energy and orientation to react.)

Chemical Kinetics – animated tutorial on kinetics of chemical reactions.

(Main Idea: Molecular collisions need the right energy and orientation to react.)

Collision Theory

Collision Theory – demonstration of the collision theory, activation energy, and spatial orientation.

(Main Idea: Molecular collisions need the right energy and orientation to react.)

Rate of Reaction

Factors that Affect the Rate of Reaction – description of the factors that can influence reaction rates.

(Main Idea: Several factors can influence reaction rates.)

Catalysis – interactive feature on free energy, activation energy, and the effects of enzymes and catalysts.

(Main Idea: Several factors can influence reaction rates.)

Reaction Rate Problems – video discussion and demonstration of techniques in solving chemical reaction rate problems.

(Main Idea: Concentration and reaction rate are related.)

Experiment

Greenhouse Gases – interactive experiment; change the
concentration of greenhouse gases to see how the temperature in the atmosphere changes.
