Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The data related to the rate of reaction at different initial concentrations of [Hb] and [CO] is given for the reaction between hemoglobin (Hb) and carbon monoxide (CO) . The orders of the reaction with respect to Hb and CO , rate law, the value of the rate constant and the initial rate of the reaction for the given values of concentration of [Hb] and [CO] are to be calculated.

Concept introduction: The relation between the reaction rate and the concentration of the reactants is stated by the rate law.

### Explanation of Solution

The rate law for the given reaction is calculated by the expression,

Rate=k[Hb]m[CO]n

Where,

• [Hb] and [CO] are the concentrations of Hb and CO .
• k is the rate constant.

The values of m and n are calculated by the comparison of the different rate values from the given table.

The value of m is calculated using the first and second result. Substitute the values of the concentration of [Hb] and [CO] for the first two experiments in the above expression.

Rate1=k[2.21]m[1.00]n

Rate2=k[4.42]m[1.00]n

According to the given rate values in the table,

Rate2Rate1=1.24μmol/Ls0.619μmol/Ls

Therefore,

k[4.42]m[1.00]nk[2.21]m[1.00]n=1.24μmol/Ls0.619μmol/Ls(2)m=2m=1_

The value of n is calculated using the second and third result
