Experiment tells us that the following reaction:
CH3OH + KF → KOH + CH3F
is first order with respect to each of its reactants. We also know that the rate
constant for this reaction is 0.0362 1/Ms at 20.0 o
C. What is the instantaneous rate
for this reaction at 20 o
C if the initial concentration of CH3OH is 0.75 M and the
initial concentration of KF is 1.44 M?
