Sucrose decomposes in acid solution, according to the first order rate law, to give Glucose and fructose. If the half life for the reaction is 3.33 hours at 25 degree celcius, what fraction of a sample of sucrose would remain after 9 hours ?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:44 pm ad1c9bdddf
Half life t_½ = 0.693/k
and k = 0.693/3.33 = 0.208 /hr
let the initial ...
