Integrated Rate Expression of Zero Order Reaction:

Consider the general reaction:

A —————-> products

If it is a reaction of zero order then,

Rate = -d [A] / dt = k [A] ^{0} = k

d [A] = – k dt

Integrating both sides, we will get:

[A] = – kt + I

Where I is a constant of integration

At, t = 0, [A] = [A] _{0}

Therefore, [A] _{0} = I

Substituting this value of I in equation 1, we will get:

[A] = -kt + [A] _{0}

kt = [A] _{0} – [A]

k = 1 / t ([A] _{0} – [A])

Hence the Integrated Rate Expression of Zero Order Reaction is 1 / t ([A] _{0} – [A])
