Pseudo rate constant

Postby Deanna Necula 3B » Tue Mar 08, 2016 10:42 pm

To find the rate constant for a first-order pseudo reaction, how do we find k'? It says in the course reader "slope" but I'm not sure which slope it's referring to.

Since it is the first-order pseudo reaction, then look at the plot of ln[A] vs Time. It should be a straight line and the slope of that line is -k.
