By comparing equation ln ( A t A ¿ =− kt + ln ( A o A ) and y = -0.012x – 1.5792, Therefore, rate constant, k is 0.012 min -1 . Discussion Derivation of equation [Co(NH 3 ) 5 Cl] 2+ + H 2 O [Co(NH 3 ) 5 (H 2 O)] 3+ + Cl - Consider the reaction follows the first order kinetics reaction, Rate of reaction: - d dt [Co(NH 3 ) 5 Cl] 2+ = k [Co(NH 3 ) 5 Cl] 2+ Let concentration of [Co(NH 3 ) 5 Cl] 2+ be c.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
