Zero order

Postby J_Rodriguez_Dis2k » Sun Feb 21, 2016 7:40 pm

if a reactant is a zero order does it effect the overall rate of the reaction?

Hello,
If there is a reactant that has a zero order, it would not have an effect on the overall order. You would essentially neglect it and add a 0 when you were summing up the orders of the reaction.

The rate law for a zero order reaction is rate=k. Can also be written as rate=k[A]^0 to more plainly see that it is zero. From this you can tell that the concentration of the reactant will have no affect on the rate of the reaction, as it is solely dependent on the rate constant k.

Also, when looking at a zero order reaction in terms of mechanisms, they are not present in the reactant portion and only the intermediates are in that portion (if you wanted to look at it from a mechanism standpoint).

If a zero order is in the reaction, the rate law is k[A]^0 = k. Therefore it has is not based on the concentration, only the rate constant.

In a zero order reaction, the concentrations of the reactants does not effect the rate.
