Sucrose decomposes in acid solution into glucose and fructose according to the first order rate law with t1/2= 3 hours. What fraction of the sample of sucrose remains after 8 hours?
Now we know that,
Put above value in the formula of first order reaction,
Taking antilog on both sides,
Fraction of the sample of sucrose remaining after 8 hours = 0.158
