Select the rate law that corresponds to data shown for the following reaction 
From data 1 and 3, it is clear that keeping (B) const, When [A] is doubled, rate remains unaffected. Hence rate is independent of [A]. from 1 and 4, keeping [A] constant, when [B] is doubled, rate become 8 times. Hence [rate ∝ [ B]3].
For an exothermic reaction, the energy of activation of the reactants is 
Ea(Forward) + ΔH = Ea(back word)
For Exothermic reaction, ΔH = –ve and
∴ activation energy of reactant is less than the energy of activation of products.
A chemical reaction is catalyzed by a catalyst X.Hence X 
A catalyst affects equally both forward and backward reactions, therefore it does not affect equilibrium constant of reaction.
A substance 'A' decomposes by a first or der reaction starting initially with [A] = 2.00 m and after 200 min, [A] becomes 0.15 m. For this reaction t1/2 is 
Given initial concentration (a) = 2.00 m; Time taken (t) = 200 min and final concentration (a – x) = 0.15 m. For a first order reation rate constant,

The rate of a reaction is the speed at which the reactants are converted into products.
It depends upon the concentration of reactants. e.g for the reaction
In a reversible reaction the energy of activation of the forward reaction is 50 kcal. The energy of activation for the reverse reaction will be 
Thus energy of activation for reverse reaction depend upon whether reaction is exothermic or endothermic If reaction is exothermic, ΔH = +ve Ea(b) > Ea(f) If reaction is endothermic ΔH =+ve Ea(b) < Ea(f )
In a reaction, A + B → Product, rate is doubled when the concentration of B is doubled, and rate increases by a factor of 8 when the concentrations of both the reactants (A and B) are doubled, rate law for the reaction can be written as
Activation energy of a chemical reaction can be determined by 
We know that the activation energy of chemical reaction is given by formula
where k1 is the rate constant at temperature T1 and k2 is the rate constant at temperature T2 and Ea is the activation energy. Therefore activation energy of chemical reaction is determined by evaluating rate constant at two different temperatures.
Half life of a first order reaction is 4 s and the initial concentration of the reactants is 0.12 M.The concentration of the reactant left after 16 s is 
t1/2 = 4 s T = 16

In the following reaction , how is the rate of appearance of the underlined product related to the rate of disappearance of the underlined reactant ? 
Rate of reaction
When a biochemical reaction is carried out in laboratory in the absence of enzyme then rate of reaction obtained is 10–6 times, then activation energy of reaction in the presence of enzyme is
The presence of enzyme (catalyst) increases the speed of reaction by lowering the energy barrier, i.e. a new path is followed with lower activation energy.
Here ET is the threshold energy.
Ea and Ea1 is energy of activation of reaction in absence and presence of catalyst respectively.
For the reaction rate and rate constant are 1.02 × 10–4 mol lit–1 sec–1 and 3.4 × 10–5 sec–1 respectively then concentration of N2O5 at that time will be 
from the unit of rate constant it is clear that the reaction follow first order kinetics. Hence by rate law equation,
r = k [N2O5] where r = 1.02 × 10–4,
k = 3.4 × 10–5 1.02 × 10–4 = 3.4 × 10–5 [N2O5]
[N2O5] = 3M
, rate of reaction is equal to
Rate of appearance of B is equal to rate of disappearance of A.
, it would be a zero order reaction when
For reaction If it is zero order reaction r = k [A]0, i.e the rate remains same at any concentration of 'A'. i.e independent upon concentration of A.
The temperature dependence of rate constant (k) of a chemical reaction is written in terms of Arrhenius equation, . Activation energy of the reaction can be calculated by plotting 
k = Ae-Ea / Rt
Comparing the above equation with y = mx + c
Thus A plot of log10k vs 1/T should be a straight line, with slope equal to – Ea/2.303 RT and intercept equal to log A
or Ea = –2.303R x Slope
If the rate of the reaction is equal to the rate constant, the order of the reaction is 
∵ r = k[A]n
if n = 0
r = k[A]0 or r = k thus for zero order reactions rate is equal to the rate constant.
The activation energy for a simple chemical reaction A → B is Ea in forward direction. The activation energy for reverse reaction 
The activation energy of reverse reaction will depend upon whether the forward reaction is exothermic or endothermic.
As ΔH = Ea (forward reaction) – Ea(backward reaction)
For exothermic reaction
for endothermic reaction
The reaction A → B follows first order kinetics.The time taken for 0.8 mole of A to produce 0.6 mole of B is 1 hour. What is the time taken for conversion of 0.9 mole of A to produce 0.675 mole of B?
A → B For a first order reaction given a = 0.8 mol, (a – x) = 0.8 – 0.6 = 0.2
again a = 0.9, a – x = 0.9 – 0.675 = 0.225
Hence t = 1 hour

Rate = 2.0 × 10–5 mol L–1 S–1
For a first order reaction Rate = k[A]
The rate of reaction between two reactants A and B decreases by a factor of 4 if the concentration of reactant B is doubled. The order of this reaction with respect to reactant B is:
RateI = k [A]x[B]y ... (1)
or Rate1 = 4k[A]x[2B]y
From (1) and (2) we get

Base on these data, the rate equations is:
Rewriting the given data for the reaction
Actually this reaction is autocatalyzed and involves complex calculation for concentration terms.
We can look at the above results in a simple way to find the dependence of reaction rate (i.e. rate of disappearance of Br2).
From data (1) and (2) in which concentration of CH3COCH3 and H+ remain unchanged and only the concentration of Br2 is doubled, there is no change in rate of reaction. It means the rate of reaction is independent of concentration of Br2.
Again from (2) and (3) in which (CH3CO CH3) and (Br2) remain constant but H+ increases from 0.05 M to 0.10 i.e. doubled, the rate of reaction changes from 5.7×10–5 to 1.2 × 10–4 (or 12 × 10–5), thus it also becomes almost doubled. It shows that rate of reaction is directly proportional to [H+].
From (3) and (4), the rate should have doubled due to increase in conc of [H+] from 0.10 M to 0.20 M but the rate has changed from 1.2× 10–4 to 3.1×10–4. This is due to change in concentration of CH3 CO CH3 from 0.30 M to 0.40 M. Thus the rate is directly proportional to [CH3 COCH3].
We now get rate = k [CH3COCH3]1[Br2]0[H+]1
= k [CH3COCH3][H+].
