We’re being asked to calculate the value of the rate constant, k, including units.

CH3OH + (C6H5)3CCl → CH3OC(C6H5)3 + HCl

A                 B

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

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