Homework 7A.17

Postby Eileen Si 1G » Mon Mar 02, 2020 6:35 pm

How do you find the order of the reactant B, when given that its concentration is 1.25 mmol.L-1 and its initial rate is 17.4 mmol.L-1.s-1 in Experiment 2,
and its concentration is 3.02 mmol.L-1 and its initial rate is 50.8 mmol.L-1.s-1 in Experiment 3.
I understand how to find the order for reactant A and C, but I'm having difficulty with reactant B.

Reactant B is second order. Since you know reactant C is zero order, you can focus on two reactions where reactant A is constant and reactant B is doubling and look at what it does to the rate constant. Hope this helps

you can look at the the factor of how much the rate and the reactant are changing then deduce which order the reactant is.
