## Third Order Reactions

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

### Third Order Reactions

Out of curiosity, what is the integrated rate law for a third order reaction?

### Re: Third Order Reactions

If we were to keep it in the linearized form that makes it easy to plot reaction data and see what kind of order a reaction is, the rate law for a third order reaction would be 1/[A]^2 = 2kt + 1/[Ai]^2, with Ai representing the initial concentration of some reactant A.
