Consider the following reaction was found to be the 0th order to A and 2nd order to B.

2A(cr) + 3B(aq) -->A2B3(cr)

Write a rate law equation for the reaction rate of A with B.

  1. rate = k*[A]o[B]2
    OR you may omit the A terms since A raised to the zero power is 1. The "trick" to the problem, I suspect, is that many will write it as (A)^2*(B)^3.

  2. Ok, thanks.

    Couple follow ups:

    Q1: If [A] is doubled how does the reaction rate change?

    A: I put no change because 0th order cancels it out.

    Q2: If [B] is doubled how does the reaction rate change?

    A: I put it increases by a factor of 4 because of the squared term.

    Q3: How would increase pressure effect the reaction rate?

    A:???

  3. Now that I look at Q3 I am thinking it is going to increase it, but not sure by what factor?

  4. The answer to A is correct since it's zero order with respect to A. The answer to B is correct since 2^2 = 4.
    Look at the equation. A is Cr which I assume means crystalline and that means a solid. B is aq which I assume means a liquid and A2B3 is cr which again I assume is a solid. Pressure will have an effect if reactants or products are gases; however, pressure has no effect on solids and essentially no effect on liquids. So increased pressure, I think, will have no effect on the rate of this reaction. .

    None of the orders in this reaction were 0 order; however, reactions can be 0 order. Using the idea of a reaction mechanism and rate limiting step, explain how a reaction can be 0 order for a substance.
