Week 8 - Wednesday Lecture

Postby Delaney Smith 1C » Mon Mar 02, 2020 5:43 pm

Hello! I was absent on Wednesday of week 8, I have the notes but I don't really understand what the notes mean. Can someone briefly explain the concept of Kinetics and the most important takeaway from that lecture? Thanks!

One of the important takeaways from the lecture is that kinetics deals with how fast a reaction occurs. As a result, we’re concerned a lot with rates in this chapter.

I would also suggest reading lesson 7A in the book as a good overview as well. Make sure to understand initial versus average rates
