Unformatted text preview: A ¨༊ B (rate constant = k1) A ¨༊ C (rate constant = k2) Do not make any assumptions or approximations other than the following: • Both reactions are first- order in A. • [B]0 = [C]0 = 0 b. We can measure the relative rate constants for the two reactions, k2/k1, by a simple method: k2/k1 = [C]/[B] at any time t. Derive this expression. How do you think the expression would change if [B]0 or [C]0 were not zero? 2. The following kinetic data were obtained for the hydroge...
