## Zero-order reactions

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

### Zero-order reactions

What are the units for a zero order reaction, if any?

The units of the rate are always the same, mol/(L*s). k has the same units. because concentration doesn't matter. Half life is always in time units.

When we are calculating the units for zero order reaction, the only thing that we need is the units of the rate, which is mol/L*s

I believe the units for a zero order reaction is M/s

I think it is M.s^-1
