A certain reaction has the following general form: aA → bB At a particular temperature and [A] 0 = 2.00 × 10-2 M, concentration versus time data were collected for this re-action, and a plot of ln[A] versus time resulted in a straight line with a slope value of 22.97 × 10-2 min-1.
a. Determine the rate law, the integrated rate law, and the value of the rate constant for this reaction.
b. Calculate the half- life for this reaction.
c. How much time is required for the concentration of A to decrease to 2.50 × 10-3 M?
