This download includes a lesson introducing chemical kinetics, relative rate, and instructing students how to determine rate of a reaction from a graph. It includes a powerpoint lesson with guided notes, and a 3-page worksheet.
The worksheet contains 4 multi-part, FRQ-style questions that ask students to,
- given a balanced equation, determine the relative rates of each species.
- given data, determine the initial, instantaneous, and average rate of production of a product
This worksheet addresses the following learning objective:
: The student is able to design and/or interpret the results of an experiment regarding the factors (i.e., temperature, concentration, surface area) that may influence the rate of a reaction.
The final problem is a great setup for discussion or lab on determining order of reaction.
Answer key is included.
The download includes a powerpoint lesson (.pptx) handout master (.pdf) that includes 2-page guided notes and one three-page worksheet, and answer key.
This topic should be followed up with my other worksheet on determining rate law through the method of initial rates:
AP Chemistry Big Idea 4: Rate Law (Method of Initial Rates) Worksheet
While designed specifically for AP Chemistry, this product is also useful for any level of chemistry that covers quantitative kinetics (honors, IB, college).
