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.

For your reference, here are the graphs showing the slope line trends and axes labels for each order of reaction:
