Solution: These images represent the first order reaction A initially and at some later time. The rate law for the reaction is Rate = 0.010 s-1 [A].How much time has passed between the two images?

Problem

These images represent the first order reaction A initially and at some later time. The rate law for the reaction is Rate = 0.010 s-1 [A].
A before and after snapshot of a sample. In the first box representing the initial time, the sample contains sixteen atoms of A. In the second box after a period of time, the sample contains four atoms of A, and twelve atoms of B.

How much time has passed between the two images?
