Unformatted text preview: kt 1/[A] vs. t k Note: k terms are negative because A is a reactant and is disappearing (e.g., aA + bB cC) Rate Law: r = -k C n where r = rate, k = reaction rate constant, C = concentration To solve problems: where [A] = conc @ t and [A] o = initial conc of A For zero-order reactions: use [A]-[A] o = -kt For first-order reactions: use ln[A]/[A] o = -kt or [A] = [A] o e-kt CE 3400/Reactions...
