when trying to solve for theorder of the third reactant C, we see that the exponent is 0 - sice its 0 does that make it independent of the rate and therefore not included? or should we still include it and just put 0 so that it is known?
I said that the rate = k * [A] * [B]^2 (didn't include [C] in the rate equation), but I did explicitly state that the reaction is zero order with respect to C. I think if you put [C]^0 into the rate equation it wouldn't make much of a difference as long as you stated that it's zero order with respect to C. The back of the textbook solutions don't include [C]^0.
