Question

The thermal decomposition of HCO2H is a first-order reaction with a rate constant of 2.4 x 10-3 s-1 at a certain temperature. Calculate how long will it take for three-fourths of the initial quantity of HCO2H to decompose.

(log 0.25 = - 0.6021)

Answer

Given k = 2.4 x 10-3 s-1

According to the first order rate law,
