Problem

If the rate law for a reaction is given by Rate = k[A] 1/2[B]3 what will be the effect on the reaction rate if the concentration of A is increased by a factor of 4 and the concentration of B is lowered by a factor of 2?

 

a) Increase by a factor of 2

b) Remain unchanged

c) Decrease by a factor of 4

d) Decrease by a factor of 21/2

e) Increase by a factor of 4
