Initial Rate
1 0.100 0.100 5
2 0.300 0.100 45
3 0.100 0.200 10
4 0.300 0.200 90

Determine the reaction order with respect to each reactant.

Reaction order for A:
Reaction order for B:



Expert Answer

Step 1

Consider order of reaction w.r.t [A] as m and order of reaction w.r.t [B] as n.

The rate expression would be,

Rate = k[A]m[B]n

Step 2

Order with respect to reactant A:

From the given data, identify two reactions in which...
