Will we have to know how to do the derivations of integrated rate laws for the test?

I don't think we'll need to, I would just focus on how you derive the differential and integrated rate laws.

I remember that Dr. Lavelle said that in class, we are only doing the derivations so we as students can understand what we are doing. However, the test will not be on your mathematical skills. So no derivations.

I don't think he will actually ask us to derive something on the test. Although, knowing how to derive the equations is listed on the outline for the Kinetics section, so I would be familiar enough with them to manipulate the equations.

I think its more helpful to know the derivation for comprehension purposes, but it is pretty unlikely he will ask us to derive one of these equations on the test.

It would probably be helpful to at least understand the derivations and why/how they were done to achieve the equations we will use, but we probably would not have to do that whole process on paper for the test, rather just be able to use those equations correctly when required.
