## Consider the reactions Ni 2+ ( a q ) + 6 NH 3 ( a q ) → Ni ( NH 3 ) 6 2 + ( a q ) ( 1 ) Ni 2+ ( a q ) + 3 en ( a q ) → Ni ( en ) 3 2 + ( a q ) ( 2 ) Where en=H 2 N-CH 2 − CH 2 − NH 2 The ∆H values for the two reactions are quite similar, yet Kreaction2 > Kreaction1.Explain.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: An explanation regarding the fact that the values of enthalpy change for the two reactions are quite similar but not rate constant is to be stated.

Concept introduction: The term ΔGο is a thermodynamic function. The superscript on this function represents its standard form. The term Δ represents the change. This function is known as the standard Gibb’s free energy change. It correlates the enthalpy and entropy of the system in a mathematical formula. The rate constant is also relates with the Gibb’s energy.

### Explanation of Solution

Given

The reactions is given as,

Ni2+(aq)+6NH3(aq)Ni(NH3)62+(aq)Ni2+(aq)+3en(aq)Ni(en)62+(aq)

The group (en) is H2NCH2CH2H2N .

The values of ΔH is similar
