Science / Chemistry / Integrated Rate Law: Rate laws like d[A]/dt = -k[A] give instantaneous concentration changes. To find the change in concentration over time, the instantaneous changes must by added (integrated) over the desired time interval. The rate law d[A]/dt = -k[A] can be integrated from time zero to time t to obtain the integrated rate law ln([A]/[A]o = -kt, where [A]o is the initial concentration of A.
