third order

Postby Priscilla Okaiteye » Sat Mar 16, 2019 8:51 pm

Do we need to worry about third order anything?

Possibly, it is in the curriculum.

I believe Professor Lavelle said we were going to cover only up to second order

Hope this helps, from my understanding Dr. Lavelle only wants us to focus on 1st, 2nd, and Oth order reactions but third order is not a scope of this class.

The textbook says their are mostly uncommon. It may be useful to know because they may appear when asked for overall reaction order.

Because third order reactions are so uncommon, I think Lavelle mentioned that we would not be focusing on them at all for calculations. Especially because the equation is not on the formula sheet, I think it would be really unlikely we would have to calculate anything for them. If anything, I would just understand that if it is third order, that means 3 molecules/atoms would have to collide at the same time and place in order for the reaction to occur.

In lecture he mentioned that they are unlikely and he placed more emphasis on understanding the 0th, 1st, and 2nd order.
