Solution: What is the instantaneous rate of the reaction at t = 800. s and the units?An average reaction rate is calculated as the change in the concentration of reactants or products over a period of time in t

Problem

What is the instantaneous rate of the reaction at t = 800. s and the units?

An average reaction rate is calculated as the change in the concentration of reactants or products over a period of time in the course of the reaction. An instantaneous reaction rate is the rate at a particular moment in the reaction and is usually determined graphically. The reaction of compound forming was studied and the following data were collected

Time (s)   [  ] M
0.            0.184
200.        0.129
500.        0.069
800.        0.031
1200       0.019
1500       0.016
