Solution

## The correct option is A r=K[A]2[B]From second and third experiment, we observe that when the concentration of B is kept constant at 0.4 M and the concentration of A is trebled from 0.2 M to 0.6 M, the rate increases 9 times from 4 to 36. Hence, the order of the reaction with respect to A is 2.From first and second experiment, we observe that when the concentration of A is kept constant at 0.2 M and the concentration of A is doubled from 0.2 M to 0.4 M, the rate doubles from 2 to 4. Hence, the order of the reaction with respect to B is 1.The rate law for the reaction is r=K[A]2[B]
