###### Problem Details

The reaction was monitored a function of time:

A → B + C

A plot of ln[A] versus time yields a straight line with slope -0.0045/s.

a. What is the value of the rate constant (k) for this reaction at this temperature.

b. Write the rate law for the reaction.

c. What is the half-life?

d. If the initial concentration of A is 0.250 M, what is the concentration after 225s?
