S 4 years ago When methanol is used to generate hydrogen, it reacts with the following reaction: 2CH2OH --> 2CO + 3H2. The reaction is a second order in methanol (CH2OH), and it is observed that 100g of carbon monoxide (CO) can be produced in one day in a batch reactor, if you start with 200g of methanol. What is the rate constant for this reaction?

I haven't done a question like this in forever, but I think the integrated second order rate law equation could be applied here.$\frac {1}{[A]} = \frac {1}{[A]_{0}^{}} + kt$

Hmm, alright I ll try to go from here, thanks.
