State a condition

Answer :

A condition under which the order of a chemical reaction can be altered is by taking the solvent or the reactant in the excess amount due to which its concentration does not change much.

For example,


Initially, rate is given by,

Rate= k’ [CH3COOH] [H2O]

When we add an excess of solvent then,

Rate= k[CH3COOCH3]

Here k= k’[H2O]

This is also known as pseudo first-order reaction.
