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

### Zero Order Units

What is a good way of memorizing the units for zero, 1 and 2nd order reactions, like in a way that you understand the concepts?

In the 7th edition, 7a problem #7 lays it out. The units for zero order are (mol A)/L/s. The units for first order are s^-1. The units for second order are L/(mol A)/s.

You can solve for the units of the rate constant by making sure your units at the end equal to M/s (which are the units for rate).

### Re: Zero Order Units

it may be easier to understand where the units come from by solving for it rather than memorizing them
