# 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?

##### Still stuck with a Chemistry question

Ask this expertRate constant = $\frac{0.693}{{t}_{{\displaystyle \frac{1}{2}}}}$

half life (${t}_{\frac{1}{2}}$)= $\frac{0.693}{ratecons\mathrm{tan}t}$

= $\frac{0.693}{6.3\times {10}^{-4}}$

= 1,100 seconds
