The initial rate for a reaction is equal to the
The initial rate for a reaction is equal to the slope of the tangent line at t < 0 in a plot of [A] versus time. From calculus,
Therefore, the differential rate law for a reaction is
Assuming you have some calculus in your background, derive the zero, first, and second-order integrated rate laws using the differential rate law.
