Tutorials and Problem Sets


  1. A Brief Introduction to Kinetics
  2. zero order kinetics
    • Rate law
    • Half life
  3. First Order Kinetics (A ---> products)
  4. second order order kinetics (2A ---> products)
    • Rate law
    • Half life
  5. Method of initial rates (to determine form of rate law)
