Half life first order reaction rate

Postby madisondesilva1c » Mon Mar 04, 2019 7:56 pm

In lecture, we finished by going over how the 1st order reaction rate can appear as a exponential if you take the exponentiate the rate equation for half life. Does this pattern still apply for second order reactions in a similar manner, since exponential is decreasing as a function of initial concentration of reactant, how should we understand behavior in various higher order cases?

We haven't really been taught this yet. We JUST finished our first order work, so we should wait for Dr. Lavelle to actually cover this in lecture.
