Hw 15.35

Postby Theresa 1H » Sun Feb 19, 2017 8:10 pm

Hi everyone,

In the solution manual 15.35, they used the equation [A]=[A]0/1+[A]0*kt to get the 2nd order integrated rate law. Is this equation used only to derive the integrated rate law for the 2nd order reaction? Or does it work for all orders (1st and zero order) of reaction?

The equation, [A]=[A]0/1+[A]0*kt, is a second order integrated rate law and was used to derive its half life, which is t,(1/2) = 1 / (k[A]0). The second order integrated rate law was derived from the rate law, RATE = k[A]^2.
