rate laws and graphs

Postby josephyim1L » Tue Mar 12, 2019 11:46 pm

Is it important that we understand/are able to implement graphs of rate laws and integrated rate laws for solving problems?

I think it is important to understand the graphs. I doubt we would need to draw them, but knowing the what the slopes are for different orders is probably useful. I think some practice problems even incorporate the graphs, and it might be hard to solve them if you do not know what the axes/slope would be if they aren’t labeled.

It is important to know what the integrated rate law for a 0, 1st, and 2nd order looks like when graphed, as well as what would cause them to be a straight line.

You should probably know what the graphs generally look like and how the graphs are related to the equations.
