Unformatted text preview: concentration was insignificant compared to the change in the other. The rate constant was found to be .009. The graph confirms that this reaction is pseudo first order because plotting time vs absorbance yielded a straight line. Some possible sources of error in this experiment could have been due to incorrect calibration of the spectrometer which could have given incorrect absorbance values and therefore skew the rate constant and the graph. In conclusion this experiment validated the fact that the reaction was a pseudo first order reaction and found the rate constant of the reaction as well as the rate....
