Question

A certain first order reaction has a half-life of 1.35 days. What was the original concentration of the reactant if its concentration after 5 days was found to be 0.0334 M? please show all work

Answer #1

For a first-order reaction, the half-life is constant. It
depends only on the rate constant k and not on the reactant
concentration. It is expressed as t1/2=0.693k For a second-order
reaction, the half-life depends on the rate constant and the
concentration of the reactant and so is expressed as
t1/2=1k[A]0
Part A
A certain first-order reaction (A→products) has a rate constant
of 4.20×10−3 s−1 at 45 ∘C. How many minutes does it take
for the concentration of the reactant, [A],...

Part A
A certain first-order reaction (A→products) has a rate constant
of 7.20×10−3 s−1 at 45 ∘C. How many minutes does it take
for the concentration of the reactant, [A], to drop to 6.25% of the
original concentration?
Express your answer with the appropriate units.
Answer:
6.42 min
Part B
A certain second-order reaction (B→products) has a rate constant

half-life of 236 s . What is the concentration of the reactant B
after...

a. what order of reaction has a half life that is independent of
initial concentration? b. what order of reaction has a plot of the
inverse of the concentration vs. time yielding a straight line? c.
the order of reaction with a half-life of the reaction that gets
shorter as the initial concentration is increased? d. the order of
reaction with a plot of the natural log of the concentration of the
reactant vs. time yielding a straight line? e....

Part A : A certain first-order reaction (A→products) has a rate
constant of 9.30×10−3 s−1 at 45 ∘C. How many minutes does it take
for the concentration of the reactant, [A], to drop to 6.25% of the
original concentration?
Part B : A certain second-order reaction (B→products) has a rate
constant of 1.10×10−3M−1⋅s−1 at 27 ∘C and an
initial half-life of 278 s . What is the concentration of the
reactant B after one half-life?

for certain 1st order reaction what happens to the half life if
the concentration is doubled?

The integrated rate law allows chemists to predict the reactant
concentration after a certain amount of time, or the time it would
take for a certain concentration to be reached. The integrated rate
law for a first-order reaction is: [A]=[A]0e−kt Now say we are
particularly interested in the time it would take for the
concentration to become one-half of its initial value. Then we
could substitute [A]02 for [A] and rearrange the equation to:
t1/2=0.693k This equation calculates the time...

Half-life equation for first-order reactions:
t1/2=0.693k
where t1/2 is the half-life in seconds (s), and
kis the rate constant in inverse seconds (s−1).
