Answer: $1.88 \times 10^{-12}\;M$
Given $[A]_o = 1\;M$, $[B]_o = 45\;M$, and 2nd order rate constant is $0.6\;M^{-1}s^{-1}$?
Since $[B]_0 \gt \gt [A]_0$ we can treat this as a pseudo-first order reaction.
We can use the rate equation $[A] = [A]_0 e^{-k't[B]_0}$
$\Rightarrow [A] = 1\;M\;e^{-0.6M^{-1}s^{-1} \times 45\;s \times 45\;M} =1.88 \times 10^{-12}\;M$
