Rates and orders of reactions
Rate: the rate of a chemical reaction of a process is the velocity with which the reaction occurs. Consider the following chemical reaction: drug A → drug B Rate constant: the order of a reaction refers to the way in which the concentration of drug influences the rate of a chemical reaction or process.

Zero-Order Reactions When the reaction rate is independent of the concentration of the reacting substance. A = A₀ - k₀t Where: A₀: amount of drug at t=0. A: amount of drug at time t. k₀: zero-order rate constant, (mass/time).

Zero-Order Reactions A A₀ Time Slope = ∆Y = y₂-y₁ ∆X x₂ - x₁
Graph of zero-order equation A = A₀ - k₀t slope = -k₀ Slope = ∆Y = y₂-y₁ ∆X x₂ - x₁

First-Order Reactions
When the reaction rate depends on the concentration of the reactant. A = A₀ e Or log A = -kt/ log A₀ Where: A₀: amount of drug at t=0. A: amount of drug at time t. k: first-order rate constant, (time⁻¹). -kt

First-Order Reactions
log A log A ₀ Time Graph of first-order equation log A = -kt/ log A₀ slope = -k/2.303

Half-Life Half-Life (t½): is the time required for the amount or concentration of a drug to decrease by one half. Zero-order half-life: t½ = 0.5 A₀/ k₀ First-order half-life: t½ = 0.693/ k

Shelf life Shelf life (t½): is the time required for the amount or concentration of a drug to decrease to 90% of the initial concentration. Zero-order shelf life: t90 = 0.1 A₀/ k₀ First-order shelf life : t90 = 0.105/ k

Practice Problems Find the log of 35. Find the log of 0.028.
Evaluate e – 1.3 Find the value of k in the following expression: = 50e –4k 1.5441 0.2725 K= 0.173

Practice Problems Plot the following data on both semilog graph paper and standard rectangular coordinates. Does the decrease in the amount of drug A appear to be a zero- order or a first-order process? Does the amount of drug A extrapolate to zero on the x axis? What is the equation for the line produced on the graph? What is the rate constant k? What is the half-life t 1/2 t90? Time (min) Drug A (mg) 10 96.0 20 89.0 40 73.0 60 57.0 90 34.0 120 10.0 130 2.5
