We’re being asked to calculate the rate of the reaction for the following reaction:

Cl2(g) + 3 F2(g)  2 ClF3(g)


Recall that for a reaction aA  bB, the rate of a reaction is given by:


Rate=-1aΔ[A]Δt=1bΔ[B]Δt


where:

Δ[A] = change in concentration of reactants or products (in mol/L or M)

Δt = change in time
