Problem: Assuming no other changes, what effect on the rate would result from simultaneously doubling the concentrations of both butyl bromide and OH - ion? CH3CH2CH2CH2Br  +  OH -   →   CH3CH2CH2CH2OH  +  Br - No effect It would double the rate. It would triple the rate. It would quadruple (4x) the rate. It would sextuple (6x) the rate.
