Solution: Consider the following reaction: CHCl3(g) + Cl2(g) → CCl4(g) + HCl(g). The reaction is first order in CHCl3 and one-half order in Cl2.Which of the following reaction mixtures would you expect to have the fastest initial rate?

Problem

Consider the following reaction: CHCl3(g) + Cl2(g) → CCl4(g) + HCl(g). The reaction is first order in CHCl3 and one-half order in Cl2.

Which of the following reaction mixtures would you expect to have the fastest initial rate?
There are three mixtures labled a, b and c. Mixture a contains three trichloromethane molecules and three chlorine molecules. Mixture b contains four molecules fo trichloromethane and two chlorine molecules. Mixture c contains two molecules of trichloromethane and four chlorine molecules.
