Time required to decompose SO2Cl2 to half of its initial amount is 60 minutes. If the decomposition is a first order reaction, calculate the rate constant of the reaction.

Given-


60 mins


Using the formula for half life, , we get,




k = 1.155 × 10-2 min-1


The rate constant of the reaction, k is 1.155 × 10-2 min-1
