The fictitious compound, arrhenium fluoride (AhF), reacts with itself to form a dimer with the formula Ah2F2. The reaction is second order in AhF. The value of the rate constant is 1.091×10−3 M−1s−1. What is the initial rate of reaction in a reactor filled with AhF to a concentration of 4.5 M? Express your answer in M⋅s−1.
