### homework 4.30[ENDORSED]

QUESTION: (4.30) The activation energy,Ea in an organic reaction known to be 125 kJ/mol will this reaction occur at room temperature? Is the answer to this no because the delta G naught is positive, thus it is unfavorable? Does the high value, 125kJ/mol also have something to do with the answer bein...

Yea, k' is just the reverse reaction, I don't know what else we would use it with besides, K=k/k'.

The rate constant of the reaction between CO2 and OH in aqueous solution to give the HCO3 ion is 1.5 1010 L mol 1 s 1 at 25 C. Determine the rate constant at blood temperature (37 C), given that the activation energy for the reaction is 38 kJ mol 1. Isn't k= k/k'? why did the solutions manual have k...

### Reducing agents[ENDORSED]

When we are arranging the following metals , Cu, Zn, Cr, Fe in order of increasing strength as reducing agents for species in aqueous solutions,

the stronger ones are the ones with the most negative values right?

### Re: 14.13

Hello Alondra, The simplest answer is you should look at the difference in E^{\circ}_{cell} between both reactions. So if we look, we note that one has a E^{\circ}_{cell} of +1.69 V and the other has a E^{\circ}_{cell} of +1.40V. Because we need to make the charge as positive as possible, we will h...

### 9.81

For 9.81 When it asks us to justify our selection between which two molecules are more stable can we say that Fe2O3 is more stable because its holds less atoms in contrast to which Fe3o4 holds more?
Since they are both are solids I figures that the less complex one would be more stable?
