### 2nd PUC Chemistry Chemical Kinetics NCERT Textbook Questions and Answers

Question 1.
From the rate expression for the following reactions, determine their order of reaction and the dimensions of the rate constants.
(i) 3NO(g) → N2O (g) Rate = K[NO]2
(ii) H2O2 (aq) + 3I (aq) + 2H+ → 2H2O(l) +I3
Rate = K[H2O2][I]
(iii) CH3CHO (g) → CH4 (g) + CO(g)
Rate = K [CH3CHO]3/2
(iv) C2H5Cl (g) → C2H4 (g) + HCl (g)
Rate = K [C2H5Cl]

(i) Order of reaction = 2
Dimension of rate constant (k) = [mol L-1]1-ns-1 = [mol L-1](1-2)s-1 = mol-1 L s-1

(ii) Order of reaction = 1 + 1 = 2
Dimension of rate constant (k) = [mol L-1]1-ns-1 = [mol L-1](1-2)s-1 = mol-1 L s-1

(iii) Order of reaction = 3/2
Dimension of rate constant (k) = [mol L-1]1-n s-1 = [mol L-1]1-3/2s-1 = mol-1/2L1/2s-1

(iv) Order of reaction = 1 + 1/2 = 3/2
Dimension of rate constant (k) = [mol L-1]1-n s-1 = [mol L-1]1-3/2s-1 = mol-1/2L1/2s-1

(v) Order of reaction = 1
Dimension of rate constant (k) = [mol L-1]1-n s-1 = [mol L-1](1-1)s-1 = s-1

Question 2.
For the reaction 2A + B → A2B, the rate = k[A][B]2 with k = 2.0 × 10-6 mol-2 L2 s-1. Calculate the initial rate of the reaction when [A] = 0.1 mol L-1, [B] = 0.2 mol L-1. Calculate the rate of reaction after [A] is reduced to 0.06 mol L-1.
Initial rate = K [A] [B]2
= 2.0 × 10-6 (mol-2 L2 s-1 × 0.1 (mol-1) × (0.2)2mol2L-2
= 8 × 10-9 mol L-1 s-1
we know that $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ [rate of disappearance of A] = rate of disappearance of B
∴ When [A] is reduced by 0.1 – 0.06 = 0.04 M
[B] is reduced by $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ × 0.04 = 0.02 M
∴ [B] remaining = 0.2 -0.02 = 0.18 M
Rate of reaction = K [A] [B]2
= 2.0 × 10-6 mol -2 L21
s -1 × 0.06 × (0.18)2 mol3 L-3
= 3.89 × 10-9 Ms-1

Question 3.
The decomposition of NH3on platinum surface is a zero-order reaction. What are the rates of production of N2 and H2 if k = 2.5 × 10-4(H mol-1L s-1?
For zero-order reaction rate of reaction = K ∴Rate of production of N2= k = 2.5 × 10-4 Ms-1
Rate of production of H2 = 3k
= 3 × 2.5 × 10-4
= 7.5 × 10-4 Ms-1

Question 4.
The decomposition of dimethyl ether leads to the formation of CH4, H2 and CO and the reaction rate is given by
Rate = K [CH3OCH3]3/2
The rate of reaction is followed by an increase in pressure in a closed vessel, so the rate can also be expressed in terms of the partial pressure of dimethyl ether, i.e.
Rate = k (PCH3OCH3)3/2
If the pressure is measured in bar and time in minutes, then what are the units of rate and rate constants?
Units rate of reaction = bar min-1
units of rate constant  Question 5.

Factors affecting the rate 6f chemical reaction are the following:

• Nature of reactants
• Concentration of reactants
• The surface area of reactants
• Effect of temperature

(i) Four times
[-rate1 = K[CA]2
CA2 = 2CA
rate2 = K [2CA]2 = 4K [CA]2] = 4 rate1]

(ii) 1/4 times Question 7.
What is the effect of temperature on the rate constant of a reaction? How can this temperature effect on rate constant be represented quantitatively?
The rate constant of a reaction increases with the increase of temperature and becomes nearly double for every 10 °C rises in temperature. Quantitatively, this temperature effect on the rate constant is represented as k = Ae-Ea/RT
where Ea is the activation energy of the reaction, and A represents the frequency factor.

Question 8.

 t/s 0 30 60 90 [Ester]/mol L-1 0.55 0.31 0.17 0.085

(i) Calculate the average rate of reaction between the time interval 30 to 60 seconds.
(ii) Calculate the pseudo first-order rate constant for the hydrolysis of ester.
(i) (ii) For pseudo first order reaction,
Average rate = Rate constant × Average concentration Average rate Question 9.

(i) Write the differential rate equation.
(ii) How is the rate affected on increasing the concentration of B three times?
(iii) How is the rate affected when the concentrations of both A and B are doubled?
(i) (ii) When the concentration of B is tripled, the rate of reaction increases by 9 times.
(iii) Rate of reaction increases by 8 times.

Question 10.
In a reaction between A and B, the initial rate reaction (r0) was measured for different initial concentrations of A and B as given below.

 A/ mol L-1 0.20 0.20 0.40 B/ mol L-1 0.30 0.10 0.05 rθmol L-1S-5 5.07 x 10-5 5.07 x 10-5 1.43 x 10-5

what is the order of the reaction with respect to A and B?
Let the rate law be, r = K [A]x [B]y
r1 = K[0.2]x[0.3]y = 5.07 × 10-5 -(1) .
r2 = K[0.2]x [0.1]y = 5.07 ×10-5 -(2)
r3 = K [0.4]x [0.05]y = 7.6 × 10-5 -(3) , ∴ The order of reaction with respect to A is 0.585 and with respect to B is 0.
∴ rate law = K[A]0.858 [B]0 = K [A]0.585.

Question 11.
The following results have been obtained during the kinetic studies of the reaction 2A + B → C + D

 Experiment [A]/mol L-1 [B]/mol L-1 Initial rate of formation of D/mol L-1min-1 I 0.1 0.1 6.0 x 10-3 II 0.3 0.2 7.2 x 10-2 III 0.3 0.4 2.88 x 10-1 IV 0.4 0.1 2.40 x 10-2

Determine the rate law and the rate constant for the reaction.
r = K [A]x [B]y
r, = K[0.1]x [0.1]y = 6.0 × 10-3 -(i)
r2 = K [0.3]x [0.2]y = 7.2 × 10-2 -(2)
r3 = K [0.3]x [0.4]y = 2.88 × 10-1 -(3)
r4 = K [0.4]x [Q.l]y = 2.4 × 10-2 -(4) 4x = 4
⇒ x =1 2y = 4 ⇒ y = 2.

∴ Rate law, r = K [A]1 [B]2
Rate constant, = 6M-2min-1 Question 12.
The reaction between A and B is first order with respect to A and zero-order with respect to B. Fill in the blanks in the following table:

 Experiment [A]/mol L-1 [B]/mol L-1 Initial rate /mol L-1 min-1 I 0.1 0.1 2.0 x 10-2 II x 0.2 4.0 x 10-2 III 0.4 0.4 y IV z 0.2 2.0 x 10-2

Given that the reaction between A and B is first order w.r.t. A and zero-order w.r.t. B.
∴ Rate = it [A]1 [B]0 but [B]0 = 1.
Rate = k [A]
From experiment I,
2 × 10-2 = k(0.1) ⇒ k = 0.2 min-1
From experiment II,
4 × 10-2 = 0.2 [A] ⇒ [A] = 0.2 min L-1
From experiment III,
Rate = (0.2) (0.4) = 0.08 mol L-1 min-1
From experiment IV,
2 × 10-2 = 0.2[A] ⇒ [A] = 0.1 mol L-1

[A]0 = 1 mol L-1
t = 100s
k = 2.0 × 10-2s-1 log [A] = -0.8684

= 239.34 KJ mol-1
What t1/2 = 356 min Substituting K in given equation
log(4.51 × 10-5) = 14.34 – $$\frac{1.25 \times 10^{4}}{\mathrm{T}}$$
