Solving for K (Rate Constant)

Postby Rita Tran 2B » Mon Feb 15, 2016 2:49 pm

Since there are more than one experiment, which one are you suppose to chose when solving for the rate constant (k)? You get slightly different numbers when using different times and concentrations on the given tables. Is it best to always use the last time and concentration given?

From what I know you can pick any trial to solve for k, I don't think it really matters which.

Shouldn't it give you the same rate constant k value for all the trials?
