The reactio

Answer :


It is given that the reaction is of the first order with respect to A and of zero order with respect to B.


So, we can write the rate of the reaction as:


Rate = k [A]1[B]0


Rate = k [A] …(1) [Anything to the power of 0 is 1]


From experiment I, it is given that rate = 2.0 x 10-2mol L-1min-1 and the concentration of A,[A] =0.1 [M]. So, we put these values in equation (1), and we get:


2.0 x 10-2 = k(0.1)


k= 0.2 min-1


So, we get the value of rate constant, k.


Similarly, from II, we put the values of k and Rate to get the concentration of A.


From experiment II, we obtain Rate = 4.0 x 10-2mol L-1min-1 and we already know the value of k. We put these values in equation (1), to get:


4.0 x 10-2= 0.2 × [A]


[A] = 0.2 [M]


So, concentration of A in II is 0.2[M].


From experiment III, we have the concentration of A, [A] = 0.4 [M].Also, we know the value of rate constant k, and we put their values in equation (1) and we get rate as:


Rate = 0.2 × 0.4


Rate = 0.08 mol L-1min-1 = 8.0×10–2mol L-1min-1


From experiment IV, we have Rate as 2.0 × 10-2mol L-1min-1, and we already know the value of rate constant k. Putting their values in equation (1), we get the concentration of A as:


2.0 × 10-2 = 0.2 × [A]


[A] = 0.1 [M]


So, concentration of A in II is 0.1[M].


Thus, the complete table looks like :
