7.9

The solution ti this problem uses the word "pseudo-first-order" to describe the rate mechanism. What does that mean? And how are you able to tell the other of the reaction from the elementary steps alone?

Google says that "a reaction which is not first-order reaction naturally but made first order by increasing or decreasing the concentration of one or the other reactant is known as pseudo first order reaction."

I believe the pseudo first order equation is especially applicable in the lab and helpful in solving for undetermined values regarding a specific reaction
