In a first order reaction x → y, 40% of the given sample of compound remains unreacted in 45 minutes. Calculate rate constant of the reaction. - Chemistry

In a first order reaction x → y, 40% of the given sample of compound remains unreacted in 45 minutes. Calculate rate constant of the reaction.

Solution

k=2.303/tlog_10"[A]_@/[A]_t

k=2.303/tlog_10"100/40

k=2.303/45log_10"100/40

k=2.303/45log_10"2.5

k=2.303/45*0.3979

k=0.0204"min"^-1
