The diagram below shows the proper orientation of two reactants in order for a successful collision to occur. Use this model to explain why some collisions are not successful by describing the other ways these two reactants can collide. Draw additional images to illustrate.

    I understand the molecular collision theory, but I'm not fond of this image. It's really throwing me for a loop and making it hard to answer the question.

    |dw:1434262039012:dw| In this diagram though the collision take place the contact between the reactant is too low as result it may not be the successful collision to result a new product similarly u can draw other images in what other way both can A and B collide

    @chmvijay Okay, that definitely helps. Thank you! Like I said, I understand that molecules must collide with proper orientation and with sufficient energy, but that diagram was really odd in my opinion.

    @chmvijay If it's okay with you, can I ask you one more question?

    The Ka of phenol, HOC6H5, is 1.6 × 10-10. Explain, in terms of the equilibrium constant, the chemical equation for the reaction, the equilibrium expression, and the predominant species at equilibrium.

    I'm not really sure how to approach this question. If that's all the information I'm given, how would I derive the chemical equation, the equilibrium constant, etc. ?

    The dominant species at equilibrium is going to HOC6H15 and this is due to the extremely small Ka value associated with it

    Also to derive the chemical equation basically its phenol reacting with H2O for the most part

    Just because the Ka of substances is usually experimentally determined in water solutions

    Ka relates to the Dissociation of water in the sense that Kw=Ka + Kb this allows you to find the Kb of the conjugate base if i remember correctly aswel

    i got to check to make sure thats not false info on that last item though one second

    Ya that equation does allow u to find the dissociation of the conjugate base. All good hope this helped.
