Kinetics and Thermodynamics

Postby Jose Torres » Wed Jan 09, 2019 12:30 am

How do you know when a question is pertaining to either kinetics or thermodynamics? Is the end result of one the same thing as the other, or even similar?

The equation for the equilibrium constant, which is all we’ve been working with so far, can be derived to the same point using either a kinetic consideration or a thermodynamic consideration. There is a thorough explanation of what these both entail at the end of topic 5G, but I believe the technicalities are only relevant to later parts of the class.
