1.What are the four factors discussed in lecture which influence the rate of a chemical reaction.
2. Consider the Haber process for the production of ammonia.
N2(g) + 3H2(g) --> 2NH3(g)

5. Radioactive gold-198 is used as the metal in the diagnosis of liver problems. The half-life of this isotope is 2.7 days. If you begin with a 5.6 g sample of the isotope, how much of this sample remains after 8 hours?
6. You are studying the decomposition of ozone dissolved in carbon tetrachloride (CCl4).
2O3 --> 3O2
and want to determine how long it would take a solution to decompose from a concentration of 0.0800M to 0.0300M. You take initial rate data and determine the rate law. Then using that rate law, you use the integrated form to determine the amount of time needed.
