Can You Pass This Chemical Kinetics Test? Trivia Quiz

Chemical kinetics is a study of measuring the rates of chemical reactions. This involves calculations, which may require your mathematics knowledge. It is a good teaser to those of us who think we are super good in Chemistry and Math.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    In a reaction, A + B Product, rate is doubled when the concentration of B is doubled, and rate increases by a factor of 8 when the concentrations of both the reactants (A and B) are doubled, rate law for the reaction can be written as:
    • A. 

      Rate = k [A] [B]

    • B. 

      Rate = k [A]2 [B]
