What is the half-life of methyl acetate hydrolysis at 25°C in the acidic solution described in Problem 13.99?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The half life of Methyl acetate has to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

The time taken by the concentration of reaction to get reduced of its original concentration is called as half-life reaction.

Half life for first order reactions:

The half life for the first order reaction is constant and it is independent of the reactant concentration.

Half life period of first order reaction can be calculated using the equation,

t1/2=0.693k

To calculate the half life of Methyl Acetate

Explanation of Solution

Given,

k=1.26×10-4/s

Substitute in below equation,

t1/2=0.693k

t1/2=0.6931
