intergrated rate law

Postby josmit_1D » Sun Mar 01, 2020 7:06 pm

do we need to know how to derive a integrated rate law from a differential rate law or can we simply just memorize the equation?

I think that you'll be okay memorizing it and applying it in problems. That being said, it's always better to understand equations in terms of their derivation, so knowing how to derive the equation certainly would help you. You'll be able to understand conceptual equations better. Hope this helped.

I believe they are given at the bottom of the equation sheet.

I think it's on the equation sheet?

Both versions are listed on the equation sheet. However, understanding how to derive them (at least understanding why/what is done) is definitely beneficial and it provides a better understanding of graphs given

It will probably best to understand how they are derived as he may ask you that on the final.

I think that since Dr. Lavelle went over the derivations in class it is important to understand the concept but they should all be on the equation sheet so I wouldn't worry about memorizing! It is more important to understand the differences and know which equation to use for different ordered reactions.

Even though both are given on the equation sheet I think it would be safe to know the derivations just in case anything is asked on the final.

They should be given on the equation sheet, so the derivation isn't necessary. Knowing how to apply it will be most likely all you need to know, but it doesn't hurt to know how to derive it.

what do we use the integrated rate law for? and differential?
