Chemical Kinetics AP Problems Problem #1
1. In an experiment, all the air in a rigid 2.0 L flask is pumped out. Then some liquid ethanol is injected into the
sealed flask, which is held at 35 oC. The amount of liquid ethanol initially decreases, but after five minutes the
amount of liquid ethanol in the flask remains constant. Ethanol has a boiling point of 78.5 oC and an equilibrium
vapor pressure of 100 torr at 35 oC.
a. When the amount of liquid ethanol in the flask is constant, is the pressure in the flask greater than, less
than, or equal to 100 torr at 35 oC? Justify your answer.
b. The flask is then heated to 45 oC, and the pressure in the flask increases. In terms of kinetic molecular
theory, provide TWO reasons that the pressure in the flask is greater at 45oC than at 35 oC.
In a second experiment, which is performed at a much higher temperature, a sample of ethanol gas and a copper
catalyst are placed in a rigid, empty 1.0 L flask. The temperature of the flask is held constant, and the initial
concentration of the ethanol gas is 0.0100 M. The ethanol begins to decompose according to the chemical reaction
represented below.
CH3CH2OH(g) Cu⇢ CH3CHO(g) + H2(g)
The concentration of ethanol gas over time is used to create the three graphs below.
c.
Given that the reaction order is zero, one, or two, use the information in the graphs to respond to the
following.
i. Determine the order of the reaction with respect to ethanol. Justify your answer.
ii. Write the rate law for the reaction.
iii. Determine the rate constant for the reaction, including units.
d. The pressure in the flask at the beginning of the experiment is 0.40 atm. If the ethanol completely
decomposes, what is the final pressure in the flask?

8 H+(aq) + 4 Cl-(aq) + MnO4- (aq) ⇢ 2 Cl2(g) + Mn 3+(aq) + 4 H2O(l)
2. Cl2(g) can be generated in the laboratory by reacting potassium permanganate with an acidified solution of
sodium chloride. The net-ionic equation for the reaction is given above.
a. A 25.00 mL sample of 0.250 M NaCl reacts completely with excess KMnO4(aq). The Cl2 (g) produced is
dried and stored in a sealed container. At 22°C the pressure of the Cl2(g) in the container is 0.950 atm.
i. Calculate the number of moles of Cl-(aq) present before any reaction occurs.
ii. Calculate the volume, in L, of the Cl2 (g) in the sealed container.
