I have a question about my Chemistry Stack Exchange post: Is there an algebraic reason why 1/t is proportional to initial rate?
I posted this and it was almost immediately closed. I can not think of any way to rephrase this question and have searched for hours for an answer. It being too much like a homework question is unavoidable due to the nature of the question, since I figured an explanation of a derivation would actually provide some insight towards the main and original question. May I ask for an explanation of what the problem actually is without it being too much like a homework question?
