Unformatted text preview: hydrolysis of sucrose in 0.50 m HCl (aq) produced the following data: Determine the rate constant of the reaction and the half-life of a sucrose molecule. What is the average lifetime of a sucrose molecule? 22.9 The ClO radical decays rapidly by way of the reaction, 2 ClO → Cl 2 + O 2 . The following data have been obtained: Determine the rate constant of the reaction and the half-life of a ClO radical. 23.1a Derive the rate law for the decomposition of ozone in the reaction 2 O 3 (g) → 3 O 2 (g) on the basis of the following proposed mechanism: 23.24...
