A Simple Analog Device for Direct Determination of First-order System Rate Constants

Volume 30, Number 3 (June 1976) Page 364-366

Chang, C.K.

The study of a great deal of time-dependent phenomena, especially in the field of chemical kinetics, generally involves calculation of the rate constant k for a first-order system which can be described by an exponential equation:

yt = y0 exp(-kt) (1)
