A→B→C K1 is rate constant for A gives B and K2 For B gives C If If half life of A is very less compared to B then overall rxn is A→C. State true or false

Answers : (1)


The Concept says that Half life is inversely proportional to the rate of reaction.

Here it is said that half life of A is very less.... Therefore it means dat reactant A will be converted to prooduct very fast.

Since A is converted to B in no period of time, its natural that its converted to C.

So the overall reaction can be assumed to be A→C.

Therefore the statement is true.
