Question 22
For a reaction, what generally happens if the temperature is increased?
Answer
there is no change with k or the rate
an increase in k occurs, which results in a faster rate
a decrease in k occurs, which results in a faster rate
a decrease in k occurs, which results in a slower rate
an increase in k occurs, which results in a slower rate
Question 23
The firstorder rearrangement of CH3NC is measured to have a rate constant of 3.61 x 1015 s1 at 298 K and a rate constant of 8.66 × 107 s1 at 425 K. Determine the activation energy for this reaction.

127 kJ/mol
160. kJ/mol
338 kJ/mol
240. kJ/mol
417 kJ/mol
Question 24
Given the following proposed mechanism, predict the rate law for the overall reaction.
A2 + 2B → 2AB (overall reaction)
Mechanism
A2 = 2A fast
A + B > AB slow
Answer
Rate = k[A2]
Rate = k[A2][B]1/2
Rate = k [A2]1/2[B]
Rate = k[A2]
(This one I choose) Rate = k[A][B]
Question 25
Carbon14, which is present in all living tissue, radioactively decays via a firstorder process. A onegram sample of wood taken from a living tree gives a rate for carbon14 decay of 13.6 counts per minute. If the halflife for carbon14 is 5720 years, how old is a wood sample that gives a rate for carbon14 decay of 11.9 counts per minute?
Answer
9.4 × 103 yr
7.6 × 102 yr
5.3 × 102 yr
1.1 × 103 yr

Most of these look fine at first glance, the theory questions seems sound, and the calculations I checked are correct.
Which questions in particular do you lack confidence?

Fellow classmates have told me Question 8, 22, and 24 were wrong, that it is suppose to be 6.36 torr, an increase in k occurs, which results in a faster rate, and Rate = k [A2]1/2[B]. Supposedly, my answer 8.36 was in atm, and it was suppose to be in torr. I found the second one in the book. #24, I don't particularly understand, knowledge that I have of it is that the slow step is the rate determining step, that answer, I don't particularly understand. My professor said there might be an error in one of the questions, so i might of gotten one more right. That leaves one more question wrong unaccounted for. I can't guess as to which one in particular that I am lacking confidence in though. So I guess if you can explain #24, that would be great.

The slow step is the rate determining step, but that means you ignore the subsequent steps. The rate is the combination of all elementary steps up to and including the bottleneck (and cancelling intermediates).
A2 + 2 B = 2 AB
========
{A2 > 2 A}, k1 fast
{A + B > AB}, k2 slow
Rate = 1/2 d[AB]/dt = k2 [A][B]
[A] can't be in the answer, as it's an intermediate, but can be derived from [A]^2 = k1 [A2].
Rate = 1/2 d[AB]/dt = k1k2 [A2]^(1/2)[B]
