Consider the reaction A(g) + 2B (g) ----> 2C (g) the rate is Rate= [A][B]2 what is the overall order of the reaction?

Home >> Practice Problems

The given rate Rate= [A][B]2

the order with respect to  the A = 1

and with respect to B = 3

the overall order is always the sum of the order with respect to each species in the rate law , so

1 + 2 = 3


the overall order is 3
