Deriving the integrated rate laws

Postby Michael Lonsway 3O » Sun Mar 12, 2017 8:50 pm

How can we derive the integrated rate laws for zero, first, and second order reactions? In the 2014 final exam question 4 asked to derive a second order reaction with A as a reactant so how could we derive this?

Remember that Rate of consumption is , and you would want to integrate to get [A].

See your lecture notes, in the course reader it is pages: 62 to 67

It is also covered in the 15 page PDF on my class website:

Examples can be seen in the textbook, 6th ed.
First order: pg. 623-624
Second order: pg. 630

Summary: pg. 631
