Deriving integrated rate laws

Postby Miranda 1J » Thu Mar 01, 2018 12:13 am

Do we need to know how to derive the rate laws in the y=mx+c form or do we only need to know the integrated form of the equation?

You need to know the differential rate laws (rate in terms of concentration) and the integrated rate laws (rate in terms of conc+time). The derivations are really helpful to conceptually understand going from the differential to integrated, but both are provided on the constants and equations sheets, so you don't need to memorize the derivations.

Yeah, since both differential and integrated rate laws are provided on the equations, I would just worry about memorizing which equation relates to zero order, first order, and second order.

Does the y=mx+b form refer to anything else than the graphs we looked at in class?

No i dont believe so, the y=mx+b is just to help visualize the graphs better
