🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Davis' class at VALENCIA.
You and a coworker have developed a molecule that has shown potential as cobra antivenin (AV). This antivenin works by binding to the venom (V), thereby rendering it nontoxic. This reaction can be described by the rate law
Rate = k[AV]1 [V]1
You have been given the following data from your coworker:
[V]0 = 0.20 M
[AV]0 = 1.0 x 10 -4 M
A plot of ln[AV] versus t (s) gives a straight line with a slope of -0.32 s -1. What is the value of the rate constant (k) for this reaction?
