## Zero Order Reactions

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

### Zero Order Reactions

When is it possible to get a zero order reaction in real life?

### Re: Zero Order Reactions

the haber process is a good example of this if you look it up. it is a way of producing ammonia from hydrogen and nitrogen gas.

This can also be when there is a catalyst present or when there is an excess (so rate doesn't depend on concentration of reactant)

### Re: Zero Order Reactions

There are zero order reactions in real life (ie. the Haber Process).

Typically occurs when reactants are already in large excess.
