# What are the units for a zero order rate law?

## What are the units for a zero order rate law?

The unit of the rate constant in a zero order reaction is given by concentration/time or M/s where ‘M’ is the molarity and ‘s’ refers to one second.

## What is the equation for zero order reaction?

The integrated rate law for the zero-order reaction A → products is [A]_t = -kt + [A]_0. Because this equation has the form y = mx + b, a plot of the concentration of A as a function of time yields a straight line. The rate constant for the reaction can be determined from the slope of the line, which is equal to -k.

**What are the units for rate law?**

A The rate law contains only one concentration term raised to the first power. Hence the rate constant must have units of reciprocal seconds (s−1) to have units of moles per liter per second for the reaction rate: M·s−1 = M/s.

### What is the zero order integrated rate law?

Zero-Order Reactions

Zero-Order | First-Order | |
---|---|---|

rate law | rate = k | rate = k[A] |

units of rate constant | M s-1 | s-1 |

integrated rate law | [A] = –kt + [A]0 | ln [A] = –kt + ln[A]0 |

plot needed for linear fit of rate data | [A] vs. t | ln [A] vs. t |

### How do you plot a zero order reaction?

Other graphs are curved for a zero order reaction….Rate Laws from Graphs of Concentration Versus Time (Integrated Rate Laws)

For a zero order reaction, | rate = k | (k = – slope of line) |
---|---|---|

For a 1st order reaction, | rate = k[A] | (k = – slope of line) |

For a 2nd order reaction, | rate = k[A]2 | (k = slope of line) |

**WHAT IS A in Integrated rate law?**

The integrated rate law for our second-order reactions has the form of the equation of a straight line: 1[A]=kt+1[A]0y=mx+b. A plot of 1[A] versus t for a second-order reaction is a straight line with a slope of k and an intercept of 1[A]0. If the plot is not a straight line, then the reaction is not second order.

## What is the integrated rate law for zero order?

A zero-order reaction thus exhibits a constant reaction rate, regardless of the concentration of its reactants. The integrated rate law for a zero-order reaction also has the form of the equation of a straight line: [A] = − kt + [A]0 y = mx + b

## How do you calculate rate law?

the rate law can be expressed as: Rate = k[A] y[B] z. The proportionality constant, k, is known as the rate constant and is specific for the reaction shown at a particular temperature. The rate constant changes with temperature, and its units depend on the sum of the concentration term exponents in the rate law.

**What is a zero rate law?**

In other words, a zero-order reaction has a rate law in which the sum of the exponents is equal to zero. A reaction is zero order if concentration data are plotted versus time and the result is a straight line. The slope of this resulting line is the negative of the zero order rate constant, \\ (-k\\).

### What are some examples of rate law?

A reaction can also be described in terms of the order of each reactant. For example, the rate law Rate = k[NO]2[O2] Rate = k [ NO] 2 [ O 2] describes a reaction which is second-order in nitric oxide, first-order in oxygen, and third-order overall.
