CH3CH2NO2 --> C2H4 + HNO2

a) Write out the differential and integrated rate laws for this reaction.

b) If a 10.0g sample of nitroethane is heated to 600K, what mass of nitroethane would be decomposed after 2.8 hours?

**DrBob222**, Saturday, April 7, 2012 at 10:40pmI assume you can do a from your text or notes. Look it up if you have doubts.

b.

ln(No/N) = kt

No = 10.0g

N = unknown

k = 1.9E-4 sec^-1 (but this must be converted to hours or the time below into seconds).

t = 2.8 hours.

Solve for N to find how much remains, then subtract from 10.0 to find the amount decomposed.

**Tasneem**, Sunday, April 8, 2012 at 1:50amWorked! Thank you! - Why is it ln(No/N) = kt though? The formula I have in my notes for first order reactions is ln(N1/No) = -kt
