The rate constant for the radioactive decay of14C is 1.21×10−4year−1. The products of the decay are nitrogenatoms and electrons (beta particles):146C146N + erate =k⎡⎣146CWhat is the instantaneous rate of production of N atoms in a sample with a carbon-14 content of 6.5×10−920.The decomposition of acetaldehyde is a second order reaction with a rate constant of 4.71×10−8L/mol/s.What is the instantaneous rate of decomposition of acetaldehyde in a solution with a concentration of 5.55×10M?21.Alcohol is removed from the bloodstream by a series of metabolic reactions. The first reaction producesacetaldehyde; then other products are formed. The following data have been determined for the rate at whichalcohol is removed from the blood of an average male, although individual rates can vary by 25–30%. Women⎤⎦M?−4
