Test #3 Q3

Postby nelms6678 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 11:07 am

The rate of AB4 gas consumption in this Rxn is constant throughout and is given as 0.400M/s/ If your rxn vessel starts with 0.15M of B2C, how long will it take to get to 30.00M of B2C?
AB4(g) + C2(g)---> AC2(g) + B2C(g)

Can someone walk me through this, what do you do after you balance the equation?

When you balance the equation, you should get AB4(g) + 2 C2(g) ---> AC2(g) + 2 B2C(g). Because the rate of the reaction is constant, we can use the equation rate = (change in concentration)/(change in time). You must multiply the rate by 2 because there are two moles of B2C produced for each mole of AB4 consumed. This would give you 0.800 M/s = (30.00 M - 0.15 M)/time. Solving for time, you would get 37.3 seconds.

The key is you need to remember to balance the equation. Then you can use the integrated rate law to solve for time.

When we use the (change in concentration)/(change in time) equation does that mean that it is 1st order?
