Answer to Question #53028 in Inorganic Chemistry for alok

Question #53028
what is half life period?
Expert's answer
For a given reaction the half life (t1⁄2) of a reactant is the time required for its concentration to reach a value that is the arithmetic mean of its initial and final (equilibrium) values. For a reactant that is entirely consumed it is the time taken for the reactant concentration to fall to one half its initial value.
If the concentrations of reactants are not in their stoichiometric ratios, there are different half lives for different reactants, and one cannot speak of the half life of the reaction.
