Problem: 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)

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the rate law for the following elementary reactions.


Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:

rate = k[A]x[B]y

k = rate constant
 A & B = reactants
 x & y = reactant orders
