Unformatted text preview: − ν i k : 1 [ I ] {z} y = − ν i kt  {z } mx + 1 [ I ] {z} b . (4.3) The table lists the integrated rate laws for elementary reactions. Over all reactions also follow these rate laws but now one can not express the slopes of the linearized equations as a product of the rate constant and the stoichiometric factor. Instead one uses an observed rate constant, k obs . Thus overall reactions that appear to be f rst order follow the linearized integrated rate law, ln[ I ] = − k obs t + ln[ I ] (4.4) and second order reactions go as 1 [ I ] = k obs t + 1 [ I ] (4.5) 20 INTEGRATED RATE LAWS...
