Step 1

The rate law of the given reaction can be written as,

KCN CH3Br» KBr + CH3CN
Rate K [KCN] [CH3Br
Where, K is the rate constant

Step 2

If the concentration of KBr is doubled then it would not affect the rate of reaction. The reaction will occur at the same rate as the rate does not depends on the concentration of the products. It only depends on the concentration of the reactant and here KBr is a product. Hence no change in the speed of reaction.

Step 3

If the concentration of CH3Br is doubled then, the rate of reaction will also double as per the rate equation mentioned above. Since CH3Br is a reactant and the rate...
