15.23 c) Determining rate constant

Postby Sarah Bui 2L » Sun Mar 10, 2019 11:30 pm

2 A-->B + C, given that [A]0 = 0.153 M and that after 115 s the concentration of B rises to 0.034M.

I am confused on how the solution manual explains how to find the rate constant in this question!

You have to set up an ICE box to find your final value of [A] based on the change of [B] given. Then you plug it into the first order integrated rate law to find your rate constant.

Determine the rate constant for each of the following first-order reactions, in each case expressed for the rate of loss of A: (a) A --->B, given that the concentration of A decreases to one-half its initial value in 1000. s

How do you solve part a) for this question?
