Deriving

On the syllabus it says that we have to know how to derive first second and third orders. I assume that this is because they wont be handed to us on the constants and equations sheet. But I'm a bit worried that we might actually be able to have to derive rate laws from integrated rate laws as I have seen these questions on past papers. Is this the case for us?

Considering it is moderately simple to derive, I would memorize how to derive the equations just in case.

I think if he went through the steps in class, he expects it of us.

Re: Deriving

It will be easier to figure out the derivation if you know the final equation for each order rate law
