order, x with respect to A.

•  Use values where A changes while B remains the same.

Solve for x:

x = order

(Larger concentration should be on the numerator)

$\frac{\mathbf{0}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{07}}{\mathbf{0}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{035}}\mathbf{=}\frac{{\left[\mathbf{0}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{10}\right]}^{\mathbf{x}}}{{\left[\mathbf{0}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{05}\right]}^{\mathbf{x}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathbf{2}\mathbf{=}{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{x}}$

**21 = 2

x = 1 → 1st order with respect to A ###### Problem Details
