Which of the following is not a possible unit for the rate constant of a reaction?
By plotting suitable functions of the tabulated data, determine the appropriate unit for the rate constant of this reaction.
Expressing concentrations in molars and time in hours, estimate, to 3 significant figures, the numerical value of the rate constant for this reaction.
Nitroglycerine decomposes via a first-order process. Solutions of nitroglycerine with different initial concentrations were heated to . After a certain time, the percentage of compound reacted was measured for each solution, as shown in the table.
|Initial Concentration (M)||Time (s)||Nitroglycerine Reacted (\%)|
By calculating the rate constants for each of these reactions, estimate the mean rate constant for the decomposition of nitroglycerine at .
