We’re being asked to determine the half-life of the reaction A → B based on the given diagram.
Recall that half-life is the time needed for the amount of a reactant to decrease by 50% or one-half.
This means that we need to determine the time, t where the amount of A is reduced to one half.
We know that:
To do so, we need to count the number of black dots, A at t = 0, and determine t where:
What is the half-life of the reaction?
