Problem Details

Determine the rate law and the value of k for the following reaction using the data providded.

CO(g) + Cl2(g) → COCl2(g)

[CO]i(M) [Cl2]i(M) Initial Rate (M-1s-1)

0.25         0.40             0.696
0.25         0.80             1.97
0.50         0.80             3.94

A) Rate = 11 M-3/2s-1[CO][Cl2]3/2

B) Rate = 36 M-1.8s-1[CO][Cl2]2.8

C) Rate = 17 M-2s-1[CO][Cl2]2

D) Rate = 4.4 M-1/2s-1[CO][Cl2]1/2

E) Rate = 18 M-3/2s-1[CO]2[Cl2]1/2
