(b) A graph of ln[SO2Cl2] vs. time gives a curved line. (c) A graph of 1/[SO2Cl2]  vs. time gives a straight line. (d) A graph of ln[SO2Cl2]  vs. time gives a straight line.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The conformation for the first order reaction of deposition of SO2Cl2 should be identified.

Concept introduction:

Rate of the reaction is depends linearly on only one reactant concentration is called first order reaction.

The Reaction Rate for a given chemical reaction is the measure of the change in concentration of the reactants or the change in concentration of the products per unit time.

### Explanation of Solution

(a)

The deposition reaction of SO2Cl2 is shown below,

SO2Cl2(g)SO2(g)+Cl2(g)

The deposition reaction of SO2Cl2 is first order reaction,

Generally first order reactions are,

Rate = k[A]1 = k[A]ln[A] = -kt + ln[A]initialGraph ln[A] versus time, which gives astraight
