    Collision Theory Paper

    • 911 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The collision theory states that, for a reaction to occur, particles must collide with the correct orientation with sufficient orientation for a reaction to occur (Compound Chem, 2016). This minimum energy with which molecules must be moving in order for a collision to result in a chemical reaction is known as the activation energy (Boundless Chemistry, 2015). This activation energy barrier must be crossed before reactants are converted to products. The activation complex is a temporary structure of particles, with the ability to become reactants or products (F. Senese, 2010). The collision theory helps explain why some chemical reactions proceed slowly, whilst others fast. Concentration, temperature, pressure, and catalysts are factors which modify the rate of a reaction (CDLI, 2007). These external stresses ultimately increase the number of collisions within the system, therefore increasing the reaction rate. However a catalyst provides an alternative route for the reaction, with lower activation energy. This means that particle collisions need less kinetic energy in order for a reaction to occur, in turn increasing the rate of the reaction (Boundless Chemistry,…

    thiosulfate and to see how long it would take until the cross underneath the flask is no longer visible through the milky white solution. Collision theory A collision is when two or more object run into each other. But collision theory is, that only some particle collisions make changes (or are fruitful). Fruitful or effective collisions require enough energy to break pre existing bonds and form new ones. In order to have enough energy the particles they need to have the right orientation…

    The purpose of the experiment is to determine the equilibrium constant of the reaction between Fe3+ ions and SCN2+ ions. In solutions one to five (the reference solutions), a large volume of concentrated Fe3+ ions was used in order to react with and convert all of the SCN2+ ions into FeSCN2+ ions. In solutions six to ten (the test solutions), a constant volume of Fe3+--in lesser concentration--and varying volumes of SCN2+ ions were diluted with DI water and reacted to produce an unknown amount…

    R) -5557.7 K = - (Ea / 8.314 J/K mol) Ea = 46.2 kJ/mol Explain clearly the effect of temperature on the reaction rate, making reference to the activation energy value you obtained. The effect of temperature on reaction rate can be seen in the data shown in question 4. As compared to the rate of reaction at room temperature; which is trial 1, the reaction rate increases as temperature increases and decreases as temperature decreases. The rate of reaction increases with…

    Chemical Change

    • 259 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Chemical change is any change that results in the formation of new chemical substances. Chemical changes take place on the molecular level. Another way to think of it is that a chemical change accompanies a chemical reaction. To find if a Chemical Change is occurring you need to determine whether a new substance has formed because of the change. If a new substance has been produced, then a chemical change has occurred. The new substance formed in a chemical change could be a solid, liquid or…

    if one object loses momentum the other object must gain an equal amount of momentum. An isolated system is one which the only forces are between the bodies that are colliding or exploding, no outside forces must be acting. (M.Mann, 2013) Investigative Question: Is momentum conserved during the collision of a brick and a trolley? Hypothesis: The momentum of the trolley before the collision will be equal to the…
