The reaction is first order. at 230 oc, the rate constant for the isomerization is 6.3 x 10-4/s. wha

Methyl isocyanide, CH3NC, isomerizes, when heated, to give acetonitrile (methyl cyanide), CH3CN.

 

CH3NC(g) → CH3CN(g)

 

The reaction is first order. At 230 oC, the rate constant for the isomerization is 6.3 x 10-4/s.

What is the half-life?

Rate constant = 0.693t12

          half life (t12)= 0.693rate constant

                            = 0.6936.3 ×10-4

                          = 1,100 seconds
