Now, using either the graphical method, differentiation formulas, or the polynomial derivative, the following table can be set up:
The reaction order can now be found from a plot of ln (–dCA/dt) as a function of ln CA, as shown in Figure 7-5(a), since
Before solving an example problem, review the steps to determine the reaction rate law from a set of data points (Table 7-1).
Example 7-2. Determining the Rate Law
The reaction of triphenyl methyl chloride (trityl) (A) and methanol (B) discussed in Example ...
