Problem Details

For the reaction

2A + B → products

determine the rate law for the reaction given the following data: 

Initial Concentration M,           Initial Rate, M·s–1

  A          B

0.10       0.10                           2.0 x 10   –2

0.20       0.10                           8.0 x 10   –2

0.30       0.10                           1.8 x 10   –1

0.20       0.20                           8.0 x 10   –2

0.30       0.30                           1.8 x 10   –1

a) rate = k [A]

b) rate = k [A][B]

c) rate = k[A] [B] 0

d) rate = k[A]2

e) rate = k[B]2
