Self Test 15.6B

Postby Hannah Guo 3D » Sun Mar 04, 2018 4:56 pm

For the question "Self Test 15.6B" under "Example 15.4" in section 15.4, how come it says for a first-order reaction, rate=kP?
Thank you!

This is how you can express rate before you separate the variables and integrate them to find the 1st order integrated rate law.
For the reaction: A --> P
Rate = -d[A]/[A] = k[A]'
I am assuming the textbook means [A]' = P.

Return to “General Rate Laws”
