Problem: Cyclopentadiene (C5H6) reacts with itself to form dicyclopentadiene (C10H12). A 0.88 M solution of C5H6 is monitored as a function of time as the reaction proceeds. A graph of In[C6H5] versus time yields a straight line. How many seconds will it take for the [C6H5] to be 0.11 M The k for the reaction is 0.17 s-1.
