Re: multiplying half reactions [ENDORSED]

Re: Rate law in multiple step reactions [ENDORSED]

so the overall rate law is dependent on its slowest step, so it is always going to be the determinate in the overall rate. To help remember this, I relate this to the quote "you are only as strong as your weakest link" meaning the reaction is only as fast as its slowest step.

Re: Collision Theory

As long as you understand that collision is necessary for reactions to continue, molecules need to break apart and form and with and increase in temperature this will happen more I think you should be okay.

The catalyst is used up first then later recreated while an intermediate is first created/produced then used up and not in the final product and this is how you would tell the difference I think.

Re: Atom Distance, repulsion?

I am not exactly sure how the repulsion would impact the bond length, for general understanding though the electrons are negatively charged therefore need to be as far away from each other and if it is a lone pair they have a stronger repulsion changing the shape of the molecule.
