Rate Laws for Multiple Reactants • When a reaction involves more than one reactant the rate law will contain the products of the concentration of the reactants raised to a power. • Ex. The rate law for the reaction of oxalic acid with potassium permanganate (H 2 C 2 O 4 ( aq ) and KMnO4( aq )) is: Rate = k[H 2 C 2 O 4 ] x [KMnO 4 ] y k = rate constant x = reaction order for oxalic acid y = reaction order for potassium permanganate x + y = overall order for the reaction

Working With Rate Laws The reaction C 2 H 4 + Br 2 C 2 H 4 Br 2 was determined to have the rate law: rate = k[C 2 H 4 ][Br 2 ] ½ For [C 2 H 4 ] = [Br 2 ] = 0.25 M the rate was measured as rate = 1.8x10 -3 mol/L.s Q1: What is the value of the rate constant, k? Q2: If the reaction mixture were diluted by a factor of four, what would the rate be?
