Problem: Indicate the order of reaction consistent with each observation. a. The half-life of the reaction gets shorter as the initial concen- tration is increased. b. A plot of the natural log of the concentration of the reactant versus time yields a straight line. c. The half-life of the reaction gets longer as the initial concen- tration is increased.
