initially v 0 = ka x b y where a and b are the initial concentrations of A and B respectively taking the log of both sides gives ln v 0 = ln[ ka x b y ] = ln k + x ln a + y ln b a and b can be varied independently so both x and y can be determined. usually the experiment is run so the order can be easily determined by simple inspection. problems (a) if the concentration drops very sharply (b) if there is an induction period 2.
