## overall rate

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

### overall rate

when writing the overall rate of the reaction we don't write in zero-order reactions right?

### Re: overall rate

To my understanding and a brief google search, we do not include zero-order reactions when writing the overall rate because zero order does not affect the overall rate. Hope this helps. If I am wrong someone please correct me.

### Re: overall rate

You do not include a zeroth order in the overall rate because anything to the power of zero is one. [A]^0=1 so it does not need to be included

You're correct. You don't add the zero order.

Zero-order reactions are not included in the overall rate
