Problem Details

The graph below shows a plot of the rate of a reaction versus the concentration of the reactant.

Estimate the value of k.

The figure shows the rate of a reaction as a function of the concentration of the reactant. The rate is measured from 0 to 0.012 moles per liter per second on the y-axis, and the concentration is measured from 0 to 1 mole per liter on the x-axis. The curve is a straight horizontal line at the rate of 0.011 moles per liter per second.
