An average reaction rate is calculated as the change in the concentration of reactants or products over a period of time in the course of the reaction. Aninstantaneous reaction rate is the rate at a particular moment in the reaction and is usually determined graphically.
The reaction of compound A forming compound B was studied and the following data were collected:
Time (s) [A](M) 0. 0.184 200. 0.129 500. 0.069 800. 0.031 1200. 0.019 1500. 0.016
a.) What is the average reaction rate between 0. and 1500. s? b.) What is the average reaction rate between 200. s and 1200. s? c.) What is the instantaneous rate of the reaction at t=800 s?
