For the reaction:  X + Y  -->  Z, the reaction rate is found to depend only upon the concentration of X.  A plot of 1/X verses time gives a straight line with the equation y=3.35x10-2 X + 0.200

Which of the following is correct.

Select one:
a. The reaction is second order for X and zero order for Y and k=3.35x10-2 M-1s-1
b. The reaction is second order for both X and Y and k=3.35x10-2 M-1s-1
c. The reaction is zero order for both X and Y and k=3.35x10-2 M-1s-1
d. The reaction is first order for X and zero order for Y and k=-3.35x10-2 M-1s-1
e. The reaction is first order for both X and Y and k=-3.35x10-2 M-1s-1

Step 1

Since the rate of the reaction depends only on the concentration of X, hence the order of the reaction must be zero with respect to Y.

Step 2

Since the plot of 1/X verses time gives a straight line, thus the order of reaction must be two with respect to X .This is because out of zero, first and s...
