Been working with lots of people. Can anybody help with this

Two isomers (A and B) of a given compound dimerize as follows.


Both processes are known to be second order in reactant, and k1 is known to be 0.250 L/mol · s at 25°C. In a particular experiment A and B were placed in separate containers at 25°C, where [A]0 = 1.00 x 10 -2 M and 0 = 2.50 x 10 -2 M. It was found that after each reaction had progressed for 2.70 min, [A] = 3.00. In this case the rate laws are defined as the following.


(a) Calculate the concentration of A2 after 2.70 min.
M
(b) Calculate the value of k2.
L/mol · s
(c) Calculate the half-life for the experiment involving A.
