2A → Product
initial concentration : a molL-1                       →                              0
final concentration (t=t) : (a-x) molL-1             →                  x molL-1

Integrating,


Here, c is integration constant.
At,  t=0, x=0, then from equation (i), we have,

Hence,

This is the required expression.
