Worksheet: First-Order Integrated Rate Laws
In this worksheet, we will practice using the integrated rate law for a first-order reaction to calculate the rate constant and initial concentration.
Nitric oxide from aircraft exhaust reacts with atmospheric ozone, contributing to the depletion of the ozone layer, as shown in the equation. This reaction is of the first order with respect to both reactants and has a rate constant of L/mol⋅s. What is the instantaneous rate of reaction of if = M and = M? Give your answer to two significant figures.
- A mol/L⋅s
- B mol/L⋅s
- C mol/L⋅s
- D mol/L⋅s
- E mol/L⋅s
