The National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) kinetics database lists the rate constant, ? k  , of a particular gaseous reaction at 9.89 x 10^-10 cm^3 M-1 S-1 298 k.


Convert the rate constant to units of M-1* S-1 M 1 s 1 
check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

Dear student, you have mentioned the units of the rate constant to be cm3M-1s-1, rather is should be cm3molecule-1s-1 which ich to  be converted to M-1s-1 ( or Lmol-1s-1 because 1 M = 1 mol/L). Please check once.


Step 2

The conversion may be achieved by considering the conversion as : 

1 cm3 = 10 -3 L

1 mol = 6.023×1023 molecules

Step 3

Thus, the mentioned conversio...
