Derive an expression for the rate constant of 2nd reaction of the type, 2A→product.

2A → Product
initial concentration : a molL-1                       →                              0
final concentration (t=t) : (a-x) molL-1             →                  x molL-1


Here, c is integration constant.

At,  t=0, x=0, then from equation (i), we have,



This is the required expression.
