Rate laws for a reaction are determined experimentally and cannot be inferred from sole inspection of a chemical equation. However, for elementary reactions, you can use the number of reactant molecules to determine the rate law. For instance, a unimolecular reaction would have a first-order rate law while a bimolecular reaction would have a second-oder reaction.
