    Need Help!!!-Chemistry kinetics

    1. Consider the following initial rate data for the decomposition of compound AB to give A and B:
    [AB]o(mol/L) Initial Rate(mol/L*s)
    .200 3.20*10^-3
    .400 1.28*10^-2
    .600 2.88*10^-2

    2. Determine the half-life for the decomposition reaction initially having 1.00M AB present.

    3. If someone could just give me a clue what to do i would really appreciate it, thank you

    How does the initial rate depend on the concentration? What is the order of the reaction?
