Elementary Rate Laws – Unimolecular, Bimolecular and Termolecular Reactions – Chemical Kinetics
This chemistry video tutorial provides a basic introduction into elementary reactions and elementary rate laws. It explains the difference between unimolecular, bimolecular, and Termolecular reactions. An elementary reaction is one in which the rate law can be written from the coefficients of the balanced chemical equation and agrees with empirical data. A unimolecular reaction is a reaction that can proceed using a single molecule. A bimolecular reaction is one in which two molecules must collide in order to react. Termolecular reactions require the collision of three molecules.
