## How do you find the rate law from a graph?

Using the differential rate law, a graph of concentration versus time is a curve with a slope that becomes less negative with time, whereas for the integrated rate law, a graph of ln[reactant] versus time gives a straight line with slope = −k.

## How do you determine the rate law for a reaction?

The method of determining the order of a reaction is known as the method of initial rates. The overall order of a reaction is the sum of all the exponents of the concentration terms in the rate equation.

**What is graphical method for determination of order?**

The graphical method makes use of the concentrations of reactants. It is most useful when one reactant is isolated by having the others in large excess. A series of standards is used to make a Beer’s Law plot, the best-fit equation of which is used to determine the concentration of the isolated reactant.

**How do you calculate K in Kobs?**

kobs= k[B]. Thus the slope of the line is equal to the second order rate constant. Zero order reactions A zero order reaction obeys the rate law: -d[A]/dt = k, and the velocity of the reaction is thus independent of the concentration of the reactants.

### Why is the method of initial rates the best way of determining the correct rate law?

The method of initial rates allows the values of these reaction orders to be found by running the reaction multiple times under controlled conditions and measuring the rate of the reaction in each case. All variables are held constant from one run to the next, except for the concentration of one reactant.

### What is graphical method?

Graphical method, or Geometric method, allows solving simple linear programming problems intuitively and visually. This method is limited to two or three problems decision variables since it is not possible to graphically illustrate more than 3D.

**How do you determine the rate constant Once you’ve determined the rate law?**

To determine the rate law from a table, you must mathematically calculate how differences in molar concentrations of reactants affect the reaction rate to figure out the order of each reactant. Then, plug in values of the reaction rate and reactant concentrations to find the specific rate constant.

**How do you find K for a 2nd order reaction?**

The order of the reaction is second, and the value of k is 0.0269 M-2s-1. Since the reaction order is second, the formula for t1/2 = k-1[A]o-1.

## Why are initial rates commonly used to determine rate laws?

The method of initial rates allows the values of these reaction orders to be found by running the reaction multiple times under controlled conditions and measuring the rate of the reaction in each case.
