During the kinetic study of the reaction, 2A + B $$ \to $$ C + D, following results were obtained
Run [A]/mol L$$-$$1 [B]/mol L$$-$$1 Initial rate of formation
of D/mol L$$-$$1 min$$-$$1
I. 0.1 0.1 6.0$$ \times $$10$$-$$3
II. 0.3 0.2 7.2$$ \times $$10$$-$$2
III. 0.3 0.4 2.88$$ \times $$10$$-$$1
IV. 0.4 0.1 2.40$$ \times $$10$$-$$2

Based on the above data which one of the following is correct?
A
Rate = k[A]2[B]
B
Rate = k[A][B]
C
Rate = k[A]2[B]2
D
Rate = k[A][B]2

Explanation

Rate = k[A]x [B]y

For the given situations

(I) rate = k(0.1)x (0.1)y = 6.0$$ \times $$10$$-$$3

(II) rate = k(0.2)x (0.3)y = 7.2$$ \times $$10$$-$$2

(III) rate = k(0.3)x (0.4)y = 2.88$$ \times $$10$$-$$1

(IV) rate = k(0.4)x (0.1)y = 2.40$$ \times $$10$$-$$2

Dividing eq. (I) by eq. (IV) we get

$${\left( {{{0.1} \over {0.4}}} \right)^x}{\left( {{{0.1} \over {0.1}}} \right)^y} = {{6.0 \times {{10}^{ - 3}}} \over {2.4 \times {{10}^{ - 2}}}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $${\left( {{1 \over 4}} \right)^x} = {\left( {{1 \over 4}} \right)^1}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ x = 1

On dividing eq. (II) by eq. (III) we get

$${\left( {{{0.3} \over {0.3}}} \right)^x}{\left( {{{0.2} \over {0.4}}} \right)^y} = {{7.2 \times {{10}^{ - 2}}} \over {2.88 \times {{10}^{ - 1}}}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $${\left( {{1 \over 2}} \right)^y} = {1 \over 4}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ y = 2

$$ \therefore $$ Rate = k[A][B]2

The rate of the reaction, 2NO + Cl2 $$ \to $$ 2NOCl is given by the rate equation rate = k[NO]2[Cl2]. The value of the rate constant can be increased by
A
increasing the temperature
B
increasing the concentration of NO
C
increasing the concentration of the Cl2
D
doing all of these.

Explanation

The value of rate constant can be increased by increasing the temperature and is independent of the initial concerntration of the reactants.

For the reaction N2O5(g) $$ \to $$  2NO2(g) + 1/2O2(g)
the value of rate of disappearance of N2O5 is given as 6.25 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1. The rate of formation of NO2 and O2 is given respectively as
A
6.25 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1 and
6.25 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1
B
1.25 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$2 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1 and
3.125 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1
C
6.25 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1 and
3.125 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1
D
1.25 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$2 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1 and
6.25 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1

Explanation

N2O5(g) $$ \to $$  2NO2(g) + 1/2O2(g)

$$ - {{d\left[ {{N_2}{O_5}} \right]} \over {dt}} = {1 \over 2}{{d\left[ {N{O_2}} \right]} \over {dt}} = 2{{d\left[ {{O_2}} \right]} \over {dt}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $${{d\left[ {N{O_2}} \right]} \over {dt}} = - 2{{d\left[ {{N_2}{O_5}} \right]} \over {dt}}$$

= 2 $$ \times $$ 6.25 $$ \times $$ 10 mol l-1 sec-1

= 1.25 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$2 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1

$${{d\left[ {{O_2}} \right]} \over {dt}} = - {1 \over 2}{{d\left[ {{N_2}{O_5}} \right]} \over {dt}}$$

= $${{6.25 \times {{10}^{ - 3}}} \over 2}$$

= 3.125 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 mol L$$-$$1 s$$-$$1

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)

AIPMT 2009

Half-life period of a first order reaction is 1386 seconds. The specific rate constant of the reaction is
A
0.5 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$2 s$$-$$1
B
0.5 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 s$$-$$1
C
5.0 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$2 s$$-$$1
D
5.0 $$ \times $$ 10$$-$$3 s$$-$$1.

Explanation

Specific rate constant

k = $${{0.693} \over {{t_{1/2}}}}$$

= $${{0.693} \over {1386}}$$

= 0.5 $$ \times $$ 10-3 sec-1
