  1. It depends upon what the half life is measured in. If the half life is 3.54 sec then k is in sec^-1. If half life is 4.5 min, then k is in min^-1. You may be asking the other way around (what unit for half life if k .....) but I think you gt the idea.

    please help me find the definition for unit rate. It depends upon what kind of unit. Go to www.google.com and type in unit rate. There is one source there for hotel unit rates, another for unit rates for the medical field, etc.
