Convert Rate Constant units from M^-1 s^-1 to Torr^-1 s^-1?

How do I convert from M to Torr?? The given rate constant is 8.72×10^-37 M^-1 s^-1

Please help, Thanks!

  • Molarity is moles / Litre……….” n/V”,

    for ideal gases:

    PV = nRT

    P = n/V (RT)

    P = M (RT)

    ================================

    from M^-1 s^-1 to Torr^-1 s^-1

    1 / P = 1 / [M (RT)]

    1 / P = (1 / M) times 1 / (RT)

    torr^-1sec^-1 = (8.72×10^-37 M^-1 s^-1) (1 / (62.306 Torr-Litres/ mol-K) (T)

    assuming that it was done at 25C,….298 Kelvin,

    would be:

    torr^-1sec^-1 = (8.72×10^-37 M^-1 s^-1) (1 / (62.306 Torr-Litres/ mol-K) (298)

    torr^-1sec^-1 = (8.72×10^-37 M^-1 s^-1) (1 / (18,567)

    torr^-1sec^-1 = (8.72×10^-37 M^-1 s^-1) (5.386 X 10^-5)

    torr^-1sec^-1 = 4.70 X 10^-41

  • Many good opinions already for this
