Abstract:

A course for 12th grade school students is described, in which students are 1st made aware, that chem. reactions proceed with different velocities and are coupled with energetic changes, after which a 2nd order reaction is interpreted by collision theory, introducing the terms activation energy and activation entropy. The law of mass action is introduced and the relations between thermodn. quantities and equil. consts. are discussed. [on SciFinder (R)]
