where each step is a nonreversible first-order reaction. The hydrolysis of chlordiazepoxide follows a first-order decomposition scheme similar to that described in this equation (Scheme 4.14). The rate of decomposition of A is

The rate of change of concentration of B is d[B]

Integration of the rate equation (4.33) yields

which upon integration gives

Since, at any time,

then
