Rate Laws

Postby beckyolmedo1G » Thu Mar 07, 2019 4:44 pm

Are we expected to know how to get from the differential rate laws to the integrated rate law for the orders, 0, 1, and 2?

The integrated rate laws are given on the formula sheet, so you wouldn't need to know the exact derivations.

You might want to have a basic understanding of how the equations are derived. You mainly just need to know that you set the rate law in the form k[A]^n equal to the rate law in the form -d[A]/dt and solve.

They will give you derivations on the test i believe.

The rate laws will be given but will not be labeled which order it is. I recommend familiarizing yourself with the derivative and integrTed rate laws so you can recognize which is for which order of reaction.

I'm still confused on why we apply rate laws to certain questions. Can someone explain what a rate law is and why it is useful?

The integrated rate laws are given on the formula sheet, but I think you should still have a general idea about how to integrate to get them.

Pretty sure they're given but it's good to know how to do it yourself so you understand the concept
