Problem: The units of the rate constant for a third-order reaction are:a. 1/M3•sb. 1/M•sc. M2•sd. 1/M2•se. M-3•s

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the unit for the rate constant (k) of a third-order reaction


In this case, we can solve for the units of k using M as concentration and t as seconds. We can establish the equation as:


rate = k[A]3
