The question provides a table of values, with which we can work out the rate = kr[A][B]2[C]2 (overall order of 5). When I calculate kr, I get the answer 2.85 L4*mmol-4*s-1. When I calculate the rate with that k, [A] = 3.01 mmol/L, [B] = 1.00 mmol/L, and [C] = 1.15 mmol/L, I get rate = 11.3 mmol*L-1*s-1. However, the answer provided by the book for kr is 2.85 x 1012 L4*mmol4*s-1. Where did the 1012 come from? How come the units don't work out? The book then says the rate = 1.13 x 10-2 mmol*L-1*s-1. What did I do wrong in my calculation?
