Unformatted text preview: X over time. • Solve equation for [X] as a function of time, t. • Integrating from X ( t = 0) to X ( t = t ) • Solving at the limits produces. .. • Which provides a general analytical solution for X as a function of time, t • Now, note that at t 1 / 2 , X / X = 0.5 ( t = t ) ( t = 0) by definition. So we can substitute and get. .. ln (0.5) = − k * t d 1 / 2 • Which is the same as. .. 0.69 = k * t d 1 / 2...
