determining k

Postby Julia Holsinger_1A » Thu Mar 12, 2020 12:12 pm

when trying to determine k, can you use any trial (when looking at multiple trials)?

I assume by trials, you mean the problems that have different experiment charts. For a problem like this, you can use any of them as long as all of the information can be filled in except k.

Yeah, you just need to make sure that the concentration is the same for every other reactant than the one you're looking at. For example, in a reaction with reactants A, B, and C, if you're trying to figure out how [A] affects the rate of the reaction, you should compare two trials where [B] is the same AND [C] is the same.

As long as you have the corresponding reaction rate and the concentrations of the reactants/products, you can use any trial to determine k.

Yes you can use any trial to find K
