## A reaction is believed to occur by the following mechanism: Stepl: 2A⇄I     (Fast equilibrium) Step 2: I + B →     C (Slow) Overall: 2 A + B→ C What experimentally determined rate law would lead to this mechanism? (a) Rate = k[A][B] (b) Rate = k[A]2[B] (c) Rate = k[A]2 (d) Rate = k[I][B]

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The rate of the reaction should be identified.

Concept introduction:

The Reaction Rate for a given chemical reaction is the measure of the change in concentration of the reactants or the change in concentration of the products per unit time.

### Explanation of Solution

(a)

The given reaction is shown below,

Step 1:2AI(Fast)Step 2: I+BC(Slow)Overall:2A+
