How would you determine the molecularity of a reaction?

Molecularity is determined by the number of species in an elementary step:

A -> D: unimolecular
A + B -> D: bimolecular
A + A -> D: bimolecular
A + B + C -> D: termolecular
A + B + B -> D: termolecular

In other words, molecularity is simply the number of reactants participating in a reaction.

For example, is unimolecular, whereas its reverse reaction, , is bimolecular.
