🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Kielkopf's class at UOFL.
The rate law for the rearrangement of CH3NC to CH3CN at 800 K is Rate = (1300 s-1) [CH3NC]. What is the half-life for this reaction?
a. 1.9 x 10-3 s
b. 1920 s
c. 5.33 x 10-4 s
d. 520 s
We’re being asked to determine the half-life for the rearrangement of CH3NC to CH3CN.
Recall that half-life is the time needed for the amount of a reactant to decrease by 50% or one-half. The rate law for a chemical reaction is generally given by:
The reaction is CH3NC → CH3CN and the given rate law for this reaction is:
