Does the rate law rate=k[A][B] correspond to a bimolecular reaction?

Home >> Practice Problems

A bimolecular  reaction involves the collision of two particles. The rate of reaction depends on the product of the concentrations of both species involved, which makes bimolecular reactions the second order reaction .The given rate law

 rate=k[A][B]  is a possible rate law for the bimolecular reaction beacuse the reaction may look like this

A + B ----> Product

which is a bimolecular reaction having two colliding particles.


Yes, it corresponds to the bimolecular reaction.
