kinetics an thermodynamics

Postby Belle Calforda3f » Sun Mar 04, 2018 5:08 pm

We will ever use both kinetics and thermodynamics in the same problem?

I believe we relate kinetics and thermodynamics in entropy part where we can use enthalpy change and entropy to calculate equilibrium constant K.
However, in chapter 15, we do not talk about thermodynamics but only focus on kinetics.

I think that we should know the conceptual relation between thermodynamics and kinetics, however, in the next chapter text there won't be any mathematical questions tying the two together. Kinetics describes the rates of chemical reactions while thermodynamics studies how different forms of energy are changed in a reaction.

I think you should just know that thermodynamics controls whether or not a reaction will happen (whether or not it is favorable). Kinetics controls how fast the reaction proceeds.
