Specific Rate Constant

Evaluate the specific rate constant for the reaction at the temperature for which the data were obtained. The rate-law expression is rate=k[A][B]squared.

A + B>>>>>> C

Experiment Initial [A] Initial [B] Initial Rate of Formation of C
1 0.10 M 0.10 M 4.0 X .00010 M/min
2 0.20 M 0.20 M 3.2 X .0010 M/min
3 0.10 M 0.20 M 1.6 X .0010 M/min
