For this question, i dont understand how they obtained the rate order for reactant B from the table. Can someone please explain this? Thanks!!

This exercise is similar to example 15.2 on page 621-622.
So in determining the reaction order in B, try to look at experiment 1 and experiment 3. From the two experiments,
the concentration of B is increased by:
the rate (of the overall equation) changed by :
This means that
Hence, using ln, we obtained:

Because of this, the order of reaction for reactant B is 2.
Hope this helps!
