## Derivation of the Equation

$\frac{d[R]}{dt}=-k[R]^{2}; \frac{1}{[R]}=kt + \frac{1}{[R]_{0}}; t_{\frac{1}{2}}=\frac{1}{k[R]_{0}}$

### Derivation of the Equation

Do we need to know how to derive the equation? I know that Professor Lavelle went over it in class, but I am not sure if we have to know how to derive it for the final.

I think it will be given but not labeled, so we need to be able to ID it.

It may or may not end up on the final but I would familiarize myself with it just in case.
