Textbook Problem

Hydrogen peroxide, H2O2(aq), decomposes to H2O() and O2(g) in a reaction that is first-order in H2O2 and has a rate constant k = 1.06 × 10−3 min−1 at a given temperature.

  1. (a) How long will it take for 15% of a sample of H2O2 to decompose?
  2. (b) How long will it take for 85% of the sample to decompose?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The time taken for 15% of sample to decompose has to be given.

Concept introduction:

Rate law or rate equation: The relationship between the reactant concentrations and reaction rate is expressed by an equation.

  aA + bBxXRate of reaction = k [A]m[B]n

Rate constant, k: It is a proportionality constant that relates rate and concentration at a given temperature.

Explanation

The time required for the reaction is calculated as,

  Reactionrate = k [H2O2].Given:The reaction is first order reaction,rate law is , ln[H2O2]t=-kt+ln[H2O2]0time = ?Therefore,ln[H2O2]t=- kt+ ln[H2O2]0ln (85 mol/L)     = (1

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The time taken for 85% of sample to decompose has to be given.

Concept introduction:

Rate law or rate equation: The relationship between the reactant concentrations and reaction rate is expressed by an equation.

  aA + bBxXRate of reaction = k [A]m[B]n
