Rate Constant K

Postby TeaK1C » Thu Feb 18, 2016 10:21 pm

A lot of questions on practice quizzes ask us to find the rate constant k for the reaction that is given. Is there a general equation to find the rate constant k? If not, how would you calculate for the rate constant k?

First, you must find what order the reaction is. From there, you can plug in information and solve for k as long as you are given information on initial concentrations, final concentration, and time. You can also find k using half life equations as long as you know the order.

K= [products]^n/[reactants]^m where n and m are the respective number of moles
