First Order vs Second Order Reaction Half- Life

Postby VivianaHF2L » Fri Mar 15, 2019 1:48 am

When finding seconds for problem 27 in edition 6 it was just finding 1/2^n. Does this change when it is no longer first order? For example in problem 35 edition 6 the same method no longer works? Is it because it is second order?
