Question

Decide based on your plots and trend line statistical data which is the most likely order for the reaction. Give evidence for your choice.

For the generic reaction: A + 2B ---> C + D Kinetic data is given below:

Time (s): 0,10,20,30,40,50 [A]: 0.32, 0.24, 0.20, 0.16, 0.14, 0.12

Plot this data as given. Plot this data as if it were for a first order reaction. Plot this data as if it were a second order reaction. Decide based on your plots and trend line statistical data which is the most likely order for the reaction. Give evidence for your choice.

  • I graphed the graphs for the regular data; data using the 1st order integrated rate law equation; and the 2nd order integrated rate law equation. Tyler commented over 3 years ago
  • The resulting graphs all were linear data. So I do not know which would be the most likely order for the reaction. Tyler commented over 3 years ago
