We're being asked to write the rate law for the given elementary reaction equations.
When a reaction mechanism is given, the rate law can be determined using the slow step in the reaction mechanism. However, if it is an elementary reaction, that means that the reaction occurs only in 1 step.
For rate law:
▪ rate law only involves the reactants
Write the rate law for these elementary reaction equations.
(a) A(g) + B(g) → C(g) + D(g)
(b) 2X(g) → Y(g)+ z(g)
