We're being asked to determine the rate constant of the reaction below using the data:

A + B → C

[A], M [B], M initial rate, M s^{-1}

0.05 0.10 1.250 x 10^{-5}

0.062 0.10 1.549 x 10^{-5}

0.062 0.17 4.476 x 10^{-5}

For this problem, follow the steps:

**Step 1.** Determine the order of A

**Step 2.** Determine the order of B

**Step 3.** Setup the rate law equation and solve for k

For the reaction A + B → C , the following initial rates were measured.

[A], M [B], M initial rate, M s^{-1}

0.05 0.10 1.250 x 10^{-5}
