A chemical reaction A → B is carried out in a closed vessel. The following data are taken for the concentration of A, CA (g/L), are a function of time, t (min, form the start of the reaction:A proposed reaction mechanism predicts that CA and t should be related by the expression where k is the reaction rate constant.
(a) Do the data support this prediction? If so, determine the value of k. (Use a semi log plot in your solution of this problem).
(b) If the tank volume is 30.5 gallons and there is a no B in the tank at t = 0, how much B (g), does the tank contain after two hours?
