Re: 2nd order

Since the graph is 1/A v time and when you integrate that you'll get 1/[A] = kt + 1/[A]o, and when you plot 1/[A] against t you'll get a positive slope because k is positive

Re: First order rxn graphs [ENDORSED]

First order is ln A v. time with a slope of -K

Re: Work done vs work on system

When the system is doing work it loses energy which makes it negative, while if the system has work done on it it gains energy and its a positive value.

Re: Exothermic vs. Endothermic Reaction

When a reaction gives off heat it is exothermic, but when a reaction requires heat it is endothermic. SO for a reaction the be exothermic the change in H must be less than than 0. For a reaction to be endothermic the change in H is greater than 0.
