F332 - Module 2(A) The Atmosphere

Kinetics

Recall (and explain in terms of collision theory) the way that concentration, pressure and surface area affect the rate of a reaction;

Explain and use the terms: enthalpy profile, activation enthalpy

Use the concept of activation enthalpy to explain the qualitative effect of temperature changes on rate of reaction

Explain the role of catalysts in providing alternative routes of lower activation enthalpy

Explain homogeneous catalysis in terms of the formation of intermediates
