# Rate Constants

posted by on .

I'm really stuck with this one. Here's the rate law and the data that is needed. I appreciate any help

Rate= k[I2]X{[H+]Y[CH3COCH3]Z

Trial Volume of 0.0010 M I2
Volume of 0.050 M HCl
Volume of 1.0 M acetone
Volume of water Temperature (degrees C)
Reaction time
A 5.0 10.0 10.0 25.0 25.0 130
B 10.0 10.0 10.0 20.0 25.0 249
C 10.0 20.0 10.0 10.0 25.0 128
D 10.0 10.0 20.0 10.0 25.0 131
E 10.0 10.0 10.0 20.0 42.4 38

What is the rate constant at 25.0 degrees C based on the data collected for trial B? Assume that the relative rate is equal to the actual rate in molar per second.

I am having trouble following along with the data that you gave; I do not know what the columns represent. If you can clarify what the columns represent then I will try to help. If not then maybe someone else will help that may know how to interpet the data.

The columns correspond to the labels above. For example, the first column, letters A-E are the Trial. The second column of the Volume of 0.0020 M I2, and so on.
