Integrated Rate Law

$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

Integrated Rate Law

The book says that the rate law of the first order reaction is (A)t=(A)0e^-kt while the course reader says ln(A)t=-kt+ln(A)0. I have been using the one in the book and getting the same answers....Is there a difference?

Re: Integrated Rate Law

No they are the same. One is in natural log form, and the other isn't but they are the same equations.
