Classroom Resources: Kinetics
1 – 3 of 3 Classroom Resources
Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Catalysts, Order of Reaction , Activation Energy, Rate Constant, Rate Determining Step | High School
In this lesson students explore reaction mechanisms and their connection to rate laws and energy profile graphs through a game, relay race, and finally a chemical demonstration.
Catalysts, Activation Energy, Molecular Geometry, Resonance, Order of Reaction , Lewis structures, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams | High School
In this lesson students will make observations of a colorful homogenous catalyst and intermediate in a reaction demonstration that will spark their interests. They will then work in teams to analyze graphs and data sets in order to make a real-world connection to AP topics in kinetics such as catalysts, intermediates and reaction mechanisms by exploring how CFCs work to break down the ozone layer. Students will also investigate and discuss this environmental issue.
Reaction Rate, Order of Reaction | High School
This lab uses the principles of chemical kinetics without using a chemical reaction. It’s an effective means to introduce the important relationship between concentration and time at an introductory level. Students will have the opportunity to analyze data and make important connections through graphing their data.
