Title Reactions and Rates 2: Intro to Kinetics (inquiry based)
Description This is part of a series of activities that I used throughout the year. After the first year, I revised the series because the students remembered more than I expected. This is the second in a series of activities that uses Reactions. Learning Goals: Students will be able to: Describe how the reaction coordinate can be used to predict whether a reaction will proceed including how the potential energy of the system changes; Describe what affects the potential energy of the particles and how that relates to the energy graph; Describe how the reaction coordinate can be used to predict whether a reaction will proceed slowly, quickly or not at all; Use the potential energy diagram to determine: The approximate activation energy for the forward and reverse reactions; The sign difference in energy between reactants and products; Draw a potential energy diagram from the energies of reactants and products and activation energy
