Units of ln[A] axis

Postby Chem_Mod » Mon Oct 03, 2011 12:33 am

When we take ln[A] to plot it in a graph against time to determine the order, is it implicitly understood that we take it as , where is the standard molarity, to cancel out the units? If not, in what units do we measure the axis ln[A]?

Yes, that's the assumption because the result of a logarithm is a pure (unitless) number.
