a. Write the rate law for the reaction.

b. If the concentration of A is doubled, how does the reaction rate change and how does the rate constant change?

c. If the concentration of A is doubled and simultaneously the concentration of B is halved, how does the reaction rate change and how does the rate constant change?

a. Write the balanced reaction.

b. Find Ho for the reaction.

c. Find So for the reaction.

d. Find Go for the reaction at 25 oC.

e. Show two different ways that you could calculate the equilibrium constant for the reaction using data provided on this exam. Then use one of these methods to determine the equilibrium constant.

5. Consider the reaction:

[Al(OH)4](aq) + Zn(s) [Zn(OH)4]2–(aq) + Al(s)

a. Write the balanced oxidation half-reaction in base.

b. Write the balanced reduction half-reaction in base.
