Solution: 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) 0.01.8553.01.58107.01.36215.01.0

Problem

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.
