Will we be expected to derive by hand the integrated rate laws from the instantaneous rate laws on the Kinetics Test or Final Exam? Or will just knowing the instantaneous and integrated rate laws be sufficient?
On the kinetics lecture outline on Dr. Lavelle's website, it says that you should "know how to derive the differential and integrated rate laws for zero, 1st and 2nd order reactions and know how to derive their respective half-life equations". The constants and equations give the integrated rate laws, but I believe it is a good idea to know how derive them. Deriving the differential and integrated rate laws isn't too hard, but, if you need help with deriving, Dr. Lavelle has a really nice math assistance portion of his website that can help you. There's a part on there called "Kinetics: The Differential and Integrated Rate Laws in Chemistry" that shows you how to derive them.
