Textbook Problem

Describe at least two experiments you could perform to determine a rate law.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Two experiments that can be performed for the determination of a rate law are to be stated.

Concept introduction: A rate law is defined as an equation that provides information regarding the relationship between the reaction rate and the concentrations of the reactants.


To determine: Two experiments that can be used for the determination of a rate law.

A common method for the experimental determination of the differential rate law is the initial rate method or the method of initial rates. In this process, different experiments are carried out at a different initial concentration value. The instantaneous rate for each experiment is calculated at the same value of temperature.

A comparison of these initial rates and the initial concentrations gives the dependence of the reaction rate on various reactant concentrations...
