Instantaneous Rate

Postby KeiannaPineda1B » Fri Mar 13, 2020 7:00 pm

How is the instantaneous rate obtained by drawing a tangent to the graph of concentration versus time?

The instantaneous rate of reaction is the slope of the line (the tangent to the curve) at any time t. If you must find concentration at one specific point instead of at a range of times then draw the best tangent to the line and extend it to convenient points on the axis

The instantaneous rate is the rate at any given time, the rate is given by the tangent line at that time
