We’re being asked to determine [A] for experiment 4.


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:

rate law=kAxBy

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:
