Given the elementary reaction:
2 NOBr==>2 NO + Br2 k = 0.80
Which variables obtained for this reaction will produce a straight line?

log[NOBr] vs. t
[NOBr] vs. t
[NOBr]2 vs. t
1/[NOBr] vs. t

instinctively i would choose B, but I am not sure what my prof is getting at with this concept-wise.

  • Chemistry -

    Your prof may be getting at the rate constants but I don't see any way of looking at these things and telling what the order of the reaction is. That's what the graph does. [Orders are determined experimentally and usually don't have anything to do with the coefficients.]
