Determine the rate law for this reaction

For the reaction
3 A(g) + 2 B(g) yields 2 C(g) + 2 D(g)

The following data were collected at constant temperature. Determine the rate law for this reaction and the value of the rate constant.

Trial Initial [A] mol/L Initial [B] mol/L Initail rate mol/L min
1 0.200 0.100 6.0 x 10 minus 2
2 0.100 0.100 1.5 x 10 minus 2
3 0.200 0.200 1.2 x 10 minus 1
4 0.300 0.200 2.7 x 10 minus 1

Solution Preview

Please see the attached file.

Use the method of initial rate as demonstrated in the reference:
A + B => C + D

Trial Initial [A] mol/L Initial [B] mol/L Initail rate mol/L min

1 0.200 0.100 ...
