Integrated Rate Laws

Postby Anika_Patel_1G » Sat Mar 10, 2018 10:32 pm

Whenever we use the integrated rate law formulas, are we assuming that it is for a reaction with only one reactant? Or are using the equation with respect to one reactant in the reaction?

with 1st order reactions there is only one reactant but for 2nd order reactions there can be two first order reactants but I think most of the time we will use reactions with one 2nd order reactant because that uses the 2nd order integrated rate law found on the formula sheet of the test

Yes most of the time you will probably only encounter second order reactions with only one reactant counted in the rate equation.

Can we only find the concentration of reactants with integrated rate laws, or is the reverse law applicable to the concentration of products?

Integrated rate laws applies to reactions other than first order reactions as well. The ln[A] vs t, 1/[A] vs T are both from integrated rate laws.
