# Problem: A reaction in which A, B, and C react to form products is first order in A, second order in B, and zero order in C.By what factor does the reaction rate change if [B] is doubled (and the other reactant concentrations are held constant)?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to determine by what factor does the reaction rate change if [B] is doubled (and the other reactant concentrations are held constant given that a reaction in which A, B, and C react to form products is first order in A, second order in B, and zero-order in C.

We can calculate the reaction rate change of the reaction from its rate law.

Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:

k = rate constant
A & B = reactants
x & y = reactant orders

From the given statement, we have:

x = 1

y = 2

hence we have the following rate law expression: ###### Problem Details
