A reaction has a rate law, rate = k times A times B squared. What is the overall order of the reaction.

I think that the order is 0. Is this correct?

    Jiskha doesn't allow students to post web addresses. But you don't need a web address to show this. You want rate = k[A][B]2.
    The reaction is 1st order in A (because the exponent of A is 1, 2nd order in B (because the exponent of B is 2, and 3rd order over all (because the sum of 1 + 2= 3).
