10 Chemical Kinetics Quiz | Chemistry Quiz

In this Chemistry quiz article, we are going to share some Chemistry study material and some multiple-choice questions of solution chapter which having some topics like Rate of a reaction, Rate law and Rate constant, Collision theory, Energy of activation and Arrhenius equation.
The branch of physical chemistry which deals with the rate at which the chemical reactions occur, the mechanism by which the chemical reactions take place and the influence of various factors such as concentration, temperature, pressure, catalyst, etc., on the reaction rates is called the chemical kinetics.

Types of chemical reactions 

On the basis of reaction rates, the chemical reactions have been classified into the following three types,
(1) Very fast or instantaneous reactions: These reactions occur at a very fast rate generally these reactions involve ionic species and known as ionic reactions. It is almost impossible to determine the rates of these reactions.

Rate of a Reaction Quiz

1. If the concentration of the reactants is increased, the rate of reaction
(a) Remains unaffected
(b) Increases
(c) Decreases
(d) May increase or decrease
SOL:  (b) Greater are the concentrations of the reactants, faster is the reaction. Conversely, as the concentrations of the reactants decreases, the rate of reaction also decreases.

2. Time required for completion of ionic reactions in comparison to molecular reactions is
(a) Maximum (b) Minimum
(c) Equal (d) None
SOL: (b)Ionic reactions are very fast reactions i.e. take place instantaneously.

(c) Unchanged
(d) Increased by four times

6. The main function of a catalyst in speeding up a reaction is
(a) To increase the rate of the forward reaction
(b) To change the reaction path so as to decrease the energy of activation for the reaction
(c) To reduce the temperature at which the reaction can occur
(d) To increase the energy of the molecules of the reactants
SOL:  (b) Catalyst decrease energy of activation.

7. The rate of a reaction
(a) Increases with increase in temperature
(b) Decreases with increase in temperature

(c) Reactions in the gas phase are always of zero order
(d) Reaction rates are of the order of molecular speeds
