multiple choice kinetics

Postby 905084274 » Wed Mar 06, 2019 9:21 pm

The speed of a chemical reaction
(a) is constant no matter what the temperature is.
(b) is independent of the amount of contact surface of a solid involved.
(c) between gases should in all cases be extremely rapid because the average kinetic energy of the molecules is great.
(d) between ions in aqueous solution is extremely rapid because there are no bonds that need to be broken.
(e) varies inversely with the absolute temperature.

what is the answer to this? I found it online and I would like some explanation

The answer is (D), and you can find it by process of elimination.

(A) we know to be incorrect, and (B) is false because surface area is proportional to chemical reaction speed. (C) is incorrect because reactions between gases are not rapid in ALL cases (e.g. very very low temperature). (E) is incorrect because reaction speed is proportional to temperature.
