Question

How can I determine the order of the reaction with respect to each reactant?

Experiment 1: .0010 M NO2, .0050 M F2; initial rate= 2.0 x 10^-4 molF2/ L x s

Experiment 2: .0020 M NO2, .0050 M F2; initial rate= 4.0 x 10^-4 molF2/L x s

Experiment 5: .0010 M NO2, .0010 M F2; initial rate= 4.0 x 10^-5 molF2/L x s
