Homework Help: Find the integral rate equation of 1st order reaction

  1. Apr 10, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The reaction v1A+v2B--->Products is 1st order wrt A and 0 order wrt B.If the reaction is started with [A0] and [B0] find the integral rate equation.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have got ln[A0]/[A0]-v1x=kt but answer is given as ln[A0]/[A0]-v1x=v1kt.Which one is right?

    ln[A0]/[A]=kt is the integrated rate equation for 1st order reaction.where A0 is intitial conc at time=0 and A is conc left after time =t .Here v1x has been used and [A0]-v1x is left.so that becomes ln[A0]/[A0]-v1x=kt????

    I'm sorry but I don't understand what you are doing. I don't understand what v1 is or what x is. You need to show your work carefully, not reiterate what you wrote in the first post.
