What are the different rate laws, their concepts, and types? What do we need to succeed in this class?

We need to know how each of the rate laws are derived. Here is a helpful picture

In case you didn't see, Professor Lavelle just dropped a PDF on rate laws. I think it's safe to assume we should know the basic idea behind how rate laws are derived and what they're used for.

We should know the 0, 1st, and 2nd rate laws, their rates in relation to k, what the graph and slope looks like, and most likely the half life equations.

How do you know when to use each equation? For example how would you know to use the integrated rate law versus the differential rate law?
