This workbook will allow you to demonstrate your understanding of all aspects of the kinetics unit. The minimum expectation is that you do all of these questions by the due dates given by your teacher. Do the questions. Use your notes from class to assist you. Then after you have finished go to the web site to evaluate your work. Make a list of those things that you do not quite understand and bring them to class. Your instructor will review them. There are other things that you should do to prepare for the test at the end of the unit. Remember, what you put into this course is what you will get out. There is no substitute for consistent effort and hard work. If you cannot do a question, get some help before the end of the unit, you need to know, understand, and remember everything. Good luck! I know you can do well in this unit.

WS # 2 Factors That Change The Reaction Rate

 

Homogeneous reactions

Reactants are in the same phase (aq), (g) , or (l) and are thoroughly mixed.

Heterogeneous reactions

Reactants are in the two or more phases and are not thoroughly mixed (two solids do not mix).

 

Classify as Homogeneous or Heterogeneous:

 

1. Zn(s) + 2 HCl(aq) H2 (g) + ZnCl2 (aq)

2. Ag+(aq) + Cl-(aq) AgCl (s)

3. H2(g) + F2(g) 2HF(g)
