Homework Help: Chemical Kinetics, finding rate of reaction

  1. Dec 13, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    At 25 C a catalyzed solution of formic acid produces 44.6 ml of carbon monoxide gas in 30s.

    a) Calculate the rate of reaction with respect to CO(g) production.

    2. Relevant equations

    Rate = dC / dT

    3. The attempt at a solution

    dC should be expressed in mol/L but I do not know how to find this with the given 44.6 mL

    Any hints as to what I should be looking for>

    Ideal gas equation? You won't be able to give the rate in terms of dC/dT, rather in terms of dn/dt, this is a valid way of describing the kinetics.
