###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the units for the rate constant of a second-order reaction

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

To determine the unit of the rate constate, k, we will use the following equation:
