Question

# Consider the reaction, $$2A + B \rightarrow$$ Products, When concentration of B alone was doubled, the rate did not change. When the concentration of A alone was doubled, the rate increased by two times. The unit of rate constant for this reaction is:

A
s1
B
L mol1s1
C
Unitless
D
mol L1s1

Solution

## The correct option is A $$s^{-1}$$When the concentration of B alone was doubled, the rate did not change. Hence the reaction is zero order in B.When the concentration of A alone was doubled, the rate increased by two times. Hence, the reaction is of first-order in A.$$r=k\left [ A \right ]^{1}\left [ B \right ]^{0}$$The overall order of the reaction is 1.For the first-order reaction, the unit of k is $$sec^{-1}$$.Hence, the correct option is $$\text{A}$$Chemistry
