###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the rate law and the value of the rate constant (k) based on the reaction and data given.

A(g) + B(g) + C(g) → D(g)

Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:

k = rate constant
A, B & C= reactants
x, y & z = reactant orders

We’re going to calculate the rate law and the rate constant using the following steps:
