The rate constant of a firstorder process that has a halflife of 225 s is ?????? s1.
ok so i divided
half life of 1st order= 0.693/K
k i put 225
and i got 3.08 x 10^3
is that right?

Yes and no.
Yes, you have the right answer.
No, k is not 225. t_{1/2} is 225.
k = 0.693/t_{1/2}
k = 0.693/225 = 3.08E3 👍
