    I'm confused how they've worked it out.

    The gradient to the curve is the rate. They have taken several rates at different concentrations

    Can you explain the calculations?

    The gradient is obtained by dividing the concentration difference by the time difference in seconds

    A few things:

    1)
    The first calculation at concentration 1.5 moldm-3 relates to the dotted blue line
    The second calculation at concentration 1.0 moldm-3 relates to the dotted red line
    The third calculation at concentration 0.5 moldm-3 relates to the dotted black line

    2)
    All calcu
    lations are concentration from where the line intersects the y axis divided by time taken. The 60 is to convert minutes to seconds.

    3)
    The reason why the concentration in the first calculation
    is equal to that of the sampling point is that it is being done at time elapsed = 0 and hence is taken from the point it intersects the y axis.


    The gradient of a straight line slope is always vertical divided by horizontal (or y divided by x).

    I hope that helps
