# Problem: For the reaction A + B + C → D + Ethe initial reaction rate was measured for various initial concentrations of reactants. The following data were collected:Trial            [A](M)        [B](M)         [C](M)         Initial rate (M/s) 1                  0.50           0.50          0.50             1.5 x 10-42                 0.50           0.50          1.50              4.5 x 10-43                 1.00            0.50          0.50             6.0 x 10-44                 1.00             1.00          0.50             6.0 x 10-4a. Find the reaction order with respect to A.b. Find the reaction order with respect to B.c. Find the reaction order with respect to C.

$\overline{){\mathbf{rate}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{k}}{{\mathbf{\left[}}{\mathbf{A}}{\mathbf{\right]}}}^{{\mathbf{x}}}{{\mathbf{\left[}}{\mathbf{B}}{\mathbf{\right]}}}^{{\mathbf{y}}}{{\mathbf{\left[}}{\mathbf{C}}{\mathbf{\right]}}}^{{\mathbf{z}}}}$

where:

rate = initial rate

k = rate constant

[A], [B], [C] = reactant concentration

x, y, z = reaction order

Calculate the order of the reaction with respect to A.

Look for the data where the concentration of A changes while the concentration of B and C remains the same.
