Unformatted text preview: RATE=K[A] . Rate Law: r=k All units cancel out for the constant K=-m To calculate the constant (k), you can find this different two ways. The easiest way is to just find a point on the line, because the constant is equal to slope. The other way would be to take the change in concentration, final from initial, and then divide that by the change in time, final from initial. The experiment was helpful in a number of ways. First I was able to have a visual understanding of how to derive a rate law from given data. Also I had never used the excel software before, and found it to be very useful, especially in doing the calculations by formulas. I will probably use it more often in the future....
