🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Sawyer's class at ASU.

Solution: The following reaction is a single-step, bimolecular reaction:CH3Br+NaOH → CH3OH+NaBr.When the concentrations of CH3Br and NaOH are both 0.170 M, the rate of the reaction is 0.0090 M/s.a. What is the rate of the reaction if the concentration of CH3Br is doubled?b. What is the rate of the reaction if the concentration of NaOH is halved?c. What is the rate of the reaction if the concentrations of CH3Br and NaOH are both increased by a factor of five? 

Problem

The following reaction is a single-step, bimolecular reaction:

CH3Br+NaOH → CH3OH+NaBr.

When the concentrations of CH3Br and NaOH are both 0.170 M, the rate of the reaction is 0.0090 M/s.

a. What is the rate of the reaction if the concentration of CH3Br is doubled?


b. What is the rate of the reaction if the concentration of NaOH is halved?


c. What is the rate of the reaction if the concentrations of CH3Br and NaOH are both increased by a factor of five?
