More Lessons for Chemistry
This is a series of lectures in videos covering topics in General Chemistry. They are conducted by Dr. Chuck Wight who teaches chemistry at the University of Utah.
This General Chemistry lecture introduces the topic of measuring reaction rates, classifying reactions as first-order, second-order, etc. according to their dependence on reactant concentration, and temperature dependence according to the Arrhenius "Law".
We then introduce two simple theories of chemical kinetics, one based on collision theory and the other based on a transition state theory.
Complex Reaction Mechanisms
In this General Chemistry lecture, we continue the conversation about kinetics by considering how to predict the rate law for an overall reaction mechanism from a series of elementary steps.
At the end, we consider three types of catalysis: homogeneous, heterogeneous, and biological catalysis.
