Problem Details

The rate of disappearance of HCl was measured for the following reaction:

CH3OH(aq) + HCl(aq) CH3Cl(aq) + H2O(l)

The following data were collected:


 Time (min [HCl] (M) 
0.01.85
53.01.58
107.01.36
215.01.02
431.00.580


Calculate the average rate of reaction for the entire time for the data from t = 0.0 min to t = 431.0 min.
