🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Dixon's class at UCF.
We’re being asked to determine the units of the rate constant of a reaction A + B that obeys the following rate law: Rate = k [B]2
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
Reaction: A + B
Given: Rate = k [B]2
A reaction A + B obeys the following rate law: Rate = k [B]2.
What are the units of the rate constant?
