Excerpt from Chapter :

¶ … molecules collide with enough activation energy that the chemical bonds break. Once these chemical bonds are broken, new bonds and products are then formed. Thus, the two previous molecules were moving at a fast enough speed to break the original chemical bonds to form new products.

The two molecules must be moving fast enough and have enough activation energy to break the original chemical bonds. Also, the two original atoms must have the right orientation in order to properly line up in the right position to actual be able to collide successfully.

The two molecules need sufficient activation energy, which comes from the energy seen in the collision to activate the process of reworking the chemical bonds.

The bonds that are being made release the energy required to break the older bonds.

e. Bond making generates more energy than is often required for the breaking of the old bonds. Thus, there needs to be a minimum energy in the collision to provide for the initial bond breaking that occurs right before bond making supplies more energy for the process.


The reaction is exothermic because it releases energy during the formation of the new products.

i. The two molecules must have the right alignment in order to have a favorable orientation for collision. The I-(aq) must collide with the Chapter 3 portion of the molecule in order to form the right products.

40. Reaction 2 would most likely have the greatest forward reaction rate because it has the greatest difference between the temperature at activation energy and when the products are formed. This means that there are more concentrations of the atoms to work with, leading to that reaction having more forward reaction rates.

44.Dynamic equilibrium states occur when the concentrations of the reactants steadily decrease and the concentrations of the products steadily increase. This means there is a simultaneous decrease in forward rate of the reaction and the same level of increase in the reverse reaction. This trend continues until both processes reach an equal rate, which is when they are at a state of equilibrium. Therefore, the reactants and products are constantly changing back and forth with no net change in total.

55. a. Neither reactants nor products favored

b. Products favored at equilibrium

c. Reactants favored at equilibrium

63. Increasing the temperature of this reaction increases the rate of the endergonic reaction more so than the exergonic reaction. This means that the equilibrium will be disrupted and the reaction will become more endergonic. As a…

Collision Model
Words: 1178 Length: 3 Pages Topic: Chemistry Paper #: 65327499

Collision Model: Explanation and Application The Collision Model is the theory that chemical reactions are the result of collisions between molecules. These molecular collisions must be strong enough to break bonds in the reacting substances. Breaking the bonds result in a rearrangement of the original configuration of atoms and a new product or products is formed ("Collision Model," Answer Corporation, 2006). Not every collision between molecules will create new products. In

NEBOSH Unit D According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the cost of workplace injuries and disease is in excess of $20 billion dollars per year. Obviously, these figures are alarming and would suggest that Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) should be a top priority for management. However, a survey from 2011 revealed that many companies have no written OHS policy and nearly half have no formalized occupational health and

85). Newly independent countries joined in the shipping industry as a way of demonstrating their economic independence, leading to an increase in the number of open registers as owners in the traditional maritime countries could now register in countries with less demanding tax laws and lower costs for workers. Shipbuilding, which had long been dominated by Europe and North America, moved instead to East Asia. Other changes also took place

Business Ethics Focus on Merrill Lynch According to Laura Hartman and her co-writer, Joe Desjardins in the work entitled "Business Ethics: Decision Making for Personal Integrity & Social Responsibility" philosophical ethics may be clearly differentiated from theological ethics because theological ethics attempted to disseminate the well-being of an individual on a religious basis while the ethics of an individual's philosophy is such that provisions of justifications that can be applied to

As we have seen, according to this theory, life has developed independently from Earth elements and was only determined by comet conditions. As such, it is not at all out of place and irrational to suggest that this is something that may happen on other planets as well. Comets bombarding other planets may seed life much the same way it is believed they have on Earth four billion years
