301. Using Calculus in Chemistry

Description

To succeed in this topic, you need to:
Be familiar with reaction rates and the physical conditions affecting the rate of change.
Be familiar with the rate expression and the investigative approaches for determining the rate expression.
Be familiar with activation energy, as the energy barrier that is overcome in a successful chemical reaction.

After working through this Chemistry Factsheet, you will:

Be aware of how calculus is used to investigate reaction rates in terms of changes in reagent concentration over time.
Be aware of the mathematical methods, including graphical analysis, used to determine the orders of a reaction, for; zero order, first order and second order.
Be able to determine the activation energy for a chemical reaction by applying the Arrhenius equation.
