couple of others to play with:
A clay pot is found at an archeological dig.
Using mass spectrometry and a piece of straw found in the clay,
the 14C concentration is found to be 0.233% of the base amount
expected at the time the straw was added to the clay.
2. Below is the concentration data for a reactant species in a particular reaction as the reaction proceeds.
a) Estimate the initial rate of reaction from the data.
b) Is this value constant as the reaction proceeds, i.e., at different times?
c) What is the order of the reaction?
d) What would you plot versus time to obtain a linear relationship?
e) What is the rate constant?
f) What is the true initial rate of reaction at t = 0?
