Problem

You may want to reference (Pages 593 - 600)Section 14.6 while completing this problem.

Consider the following reaction: 2 A + B → X + 2 Y. You are told that the first step in the mechanism of this reaction has the following rate law: Rate = k[A][B]. Which of the following could be the first step in the reaction mechanism (note that substance Z is an intermediate)?
(a) A + A → Y + Z
(b) A → X + Z
(c) A + A + B → X + Y + Y
(d) B → X + Y
(e) A + B → X + Z
