Using the experimental results in the table below:

## EXPERIMENT Initial concentration of Initial concentration of Initial rate of formation of

X/moldm-3 Y/moldm-3 XY3/moldm-3s-1
1 0.100 0.100 0.00200
2 0.100 0.200 0.00798
3 0.100 0.300 0.01805
4 0.200 0.100 0.00399
5 0.300 0.100 0.00601

2.

## a) Determine the rate law and the value of k. [5]

b) Calculate the initial rate if the concentration of ALL THREE reactants is 0.5 mol/L [1]

3. A tanker carrying liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen just exploded. Based on the orders of reaction, sketch the most appropriate
graph on the axes below which would most likely represent an explosive reaction. [1]

## 4. List FOUR factors that affect the rate of

a chemical reaction. [4]

## 5. The rate equation for the reaction

between hydrogen, H2, and nitrogen monoxide, NO, is as follow: Rate = k[H2][NO]2
