Problem: The reactant concentration in a zero-order reaction was 8.00×10−2 M after 155s and 3.00×10−2 M after 355s . What is the rate constant for this reaction?What was the initial reactant concentration for the reaction?

FREE Expert Solution

The integrated rate law for a zero order reaction is as follows:


[A]t = -kt + [A]0


where:

[A]t = concentration at time t 

k = rate constant

t = time, [A]0 = initial concentration
