Unit 8: Kinetic Molecular Theory, Reaction Rates, and Chemical Equilibrium

Essential Questions:
  1. What are the components of Kinetic Molecular Theory (KMT)?
  2. How does KMT describe matter in terms of motion of atoms/molecules in solids, liquids, gases, and plasma?
  3. What are the physical properties of the phases of matter in relation to the KMT?
  4. What are the 4 measurable quantities which describe a gas and how are they related to the gas laws and KMT?
  5. What is the relationship between intermolecular forces and the physical states of molecular compounds in relation to KMT?
  6. How is data collected during a change in state/phase?
  7. explain a heat curve and the information that it conveys.
  8. How is a calorimeter used to describe the amount of heat absorbed or released during a chemical or physical process?
  9. how do changes in concentration, temperature, pressure, and volume of a container affect chemical reaction rates and changes of state of a substance in a closed system?
  10. What is chemical equilibrium and the relationship of chemical equilibrium to Le Chatelier's principle?
