Integrated rate laws

Postby Gabrielle Schwab 1G » Sat Feb 13, 2016 11:05 pm

For 15.29, do you switch the initial concentration of A with the concentration of A at time t in the first order rate law equation because the question is asking for the reaction expressed as the rate of loss of A?

The integrated rate law is just the rate of loss of A that has been integrated

ln [A] = -kt + ln [A]0
