$\frac{d[R]}{dt}=-k; [R]=-kt + [R]_{0}; t_{\frac{1}{2}}=\frac{[R]_{0}}{2k}$

### Units of k in Zero Order Reactions

Are the units for zero order reactions M/s or mol/(L*s)?

M/s and mol/(L*s) are the same and used interchangeably so either one will be fine

M is equal to mol/L so both are the same

both are the same. and depending on which order it is, you would change it accordingly.
