## Rate Constant

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

### Rate Constant

what is the relationship between rate of reaction, rate constant, and half life?

### Re: Rate Constant

The integrated rate laws for zero order, first order, and second order reactions all include the rate constant and time. The differential form of these rate laws expresses teh rate of reaction. And by substituting the final concentration for half the initial in the integrated rate laws, we can solve for the half life equations. Though I believe the integrated rate laws and half life equations are on our Constants and Equations sheet.
