## Homework Statement

The following reaction was monitored as a function of time:

AB---> A + B

A plot of 1/[AB] versus time yields a straight line with slope 5.2×10−2 M \s.

If the initial concentration of AB} is 0.210 M, and the reaction mixture initially contains no products, what are the concentrations of {A} and {B} after 80 s?

## Homework Equations

1/A = kt + 1 / A initial

## The Attempt at a Solution

1/A = (5.2x10^-2)(80 s) + 1/0.21 M

*When I did this equation it was wrong. The correct answer was that the concentration of both A and B=9.8×10−2,9.8×10−2. Please tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks!
