Answer the following in one or two sentences. For the reaction,What is the change in rate if concentrations of both reactants are doubled? - Chemistry

Short Note

Answer the following in one or two sentences.

For the reaction,

$\ce{CH3Br_{(aq)} + OH^-_{ (aq)} -> CH3OH^-_{ (aq)} + Br^-_{ (aq)}}$, rate law is rate = k["CH"_3"Br"]["OH"^-]

What is the change in rate if concentrations of both reactants are doubled?

Solution

For the reaction

$\ce{CH3Br_{(aq)} + Br^-_{ (aq)} -> CH3OH_{ (aq)} + Br^-_{ (aq)}}$

Rate = k["CH"_3"Br"]["OH"^-]

If concentrations of "CH"_3"Br" and "OH"^- are doubled, rate will increase by a factor of 4.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
