Problem: Give the individual reaction orders for all substances and the overall reaction order from this rate law: rate = k A. order of HNO2 = ?B. order of NO = ?C. overall order = ?D. By what factor does the rate change if the concentration of HNO2 is doubled = ?E. By what factor does the rate change if the concentration of NO is doubled = ?F. By what factor does the rate change if the concentration of HNO2 is tripled and the concentration of NO is halved = ?

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


Given:

rate = k[HNO2]4[NO]2
