Flashcards in Rate Of Reaction (1) Deck (8):
Label the laboratory apparatus needed to measure the rate of reaction producing a gas
Explain why a reaction stops
Because one if the reactants is all used up
What does the rate of reaction measure?
How much product is formed in a fixed time period
Understand common units for the rate of reaction
g/s or g/min
Cm³/s or cm³/min
Explain in terms of reacting particles, why the amount of product formed is directly proportional to the amount of limiting reactant used
The amount of the limiting reactant you start with dictates the amount of product you will make. When there are more reactant particles, there is more reaction and more product particles produced.
What is the limiting reactant?
The reactant not in excess that is all at the end of the reaction
What is the amount of product formed directly proportional to?
The amount of product formed is directly proportional to the amount of limiting reactant used
