Problem 13.23.

In the reaction H2O2(aq) H2O(l) + ½O2(g), the initial concentration of H2O2 is 0.2546 M, and the initial rate of reaction is 9.32×10–4 M s–1. What will be [H2O2] at t = 35 s?






Answer:

Use the definition of rate (change in concentration over change in time), recognizing that the initial rate for the loss of hydrogen peroxide is negative and at t = 0 s, [H2O2] = 0.2546 M.

[H2O2] = 0.2220 M
