### Graph

What should the graph of an ln reactant vs. time plot look like for first order reaction?

### Re: Graph

The graph should be linear if the reaction is first order.

### Re: Graph

If the reaction is first order then the graph would be linear with a slope of -K. The same goes for zero and second order reactions. Their graphs should be linear.

If the reaction is first order, then the plot of ln[A] vs time is linear and the slope equals -k. Similarly, for a zero order reaction, the plot of [A] vs time is linear with slope=-k. However, for a second order reaction, slope= +k for the linear plot of 1/[A] vs time.

If you write [A] vs. time for a 1st order run, though, it'll show exponential decay so make sure to have it in ln form!

### Re: Graph

The graph should be a decreasing linear function.

### Re: Graph

should look linear and have a negative slope which is -k
