# Problem: Consider the reaction: 2A(g)+B(g) → 3C(g).Part A) Determine the expression for the rate of the reaction with respect to each of the reactants and products.Part B) When A is changing at a rate of -0.160 M-s-1 , how fast is B changing?Part C) How fast is C increasing?

###### FREE Expert Solution

Recall that for a reaction aA  bB, the rate of a reaction is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{Rate}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{-}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{a}}\frac{\mathbf{\Delta }\mathbf{\left[}\mathbf{A}\mathbf{\right]}}{\mathbf{\Delta t}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{b}}\frac{\mathbf{\Delta }\mathbf{\left[}\mathbf{B}\mathbf{\right]}}{\mathbf{\Delta t}}}$

where:

Δ[A] = change in concentration of reactants or products (in mol/L or M), [A]final – [A]initial

Δt = change in time, tfinal – tinitial

We are given the following reaction

2A(g) + B(g) → 3C(g).
