We have looked at first order kinetics

and the integrated rate law for first order kinetics.

We are ready now to look at second order kinetics.

We are going to have a very similar process.

We are going to derive the equations that we will use.

The integrated rate law

for second order reactions, we are going to

see how you come up with the half-life equation.

So my goal or you is to be able to use

the second order integrated rate law

to calculate the interdependence between concentration and time,

including the half-life calculations.

We will finish this lesson with a brief

discussion of zeroth order kinetics

and also tie the three together

with some graphical representations

some plot of the three.
