Step 1

Half-life of a reaction is the time at which the initial concentration of the reactant becomes half.

The half-life of a reaction can be calculated as using the following formula : Again, for a 1st order reaction, half-life is expressed as: Step 2

Part A :

The given reaction is :

N2H5+  +  4 Fe(CN)63-  →  N2(g)  +  5 H+  +  4 Fe(CN)64-

Initial concentration, [N2H5+]o = 0.18 M

Reaction half-life = 45.0 s

Time, t = 3.00 min = 3×60 s = 180 s

The N2H5+ concentration after 3.00 minutes, [N2H5+]t can be calculated using equation (1) as : The answer can be confirmed with help of the definition of half-life also.

Half-life of a reaction is the time at which the initial concentration of the reactant becomes half.

As per the definition, the concentration can be calculated as : The correct answer as per the values given in part A will be = 0.01125 M  (not any of the answer choices given)

Step 3

Part B :

Given,

Half-life for a first-order reaction = 2.54 hrs

The rate constant for this reaction can be calculated using equation (2) as : ...
