Unformatted text preview: Rate = k[C] 2 [D] Overall order = sum of exponents = 2+1 = 3 3. You measure the kinetics of a simple reaction: A → products, and find that the half-life of this reaction is independent of the initial concentration. What does this tell you about the order of the reaction? First-order reaction (Recall that t 1/2 = ln(2)/k for first-order)...
