There are three molecules of reactants involved in the rate law.

Its not commonly seen though because the chances of 3 molecules hitting simultaneously is super low which is why we don't cover third order

termolecular would cause third order reactions, which is when three molecules collide a the exact same time in the exact very specific orientation to generate a reaction. the possibility of this is very low, so it is a rare occurrence

Termolecular refers to the number of molecules that need to hit each other for a reaction to occur, in this case it is three molecules that need to hit each other in order to react. (this is rare)

Also, for termolecular reactions, the 3 molecules must simultaneously collide, so termolecular reactions are less common.

Termolecular means that there are three molecules that must come together for a reaction to occur. This means you would have three reactants.

Termolecular refers to the simultaneous collision of three species.

Three reactant molecules are involved to form the products in a single step.

Termolecular reactions are when three molecules are involved in a rate law such as A+A+A=C or A+B+B=C

Adding on, how common are these again?

Termolecular reactions occur when the formation of the product depends on the collision between three reactants. For example, A + A + B --> C.

It is when three molecules collide in order to form a product.

termolecular reactions are rare because all three molecules must collide simultaneously for it to occur. the more molecules needed, the lower the probability of the reaction occurring because they would all need to collide with a certain energy, speed, and in a certain direction to cause the reaction.

How does having three reactants affect the rate law?

Termolecular means that the reaction used three reactants to form the product.
