Determining Rate Laws and Rate Constants

This is an exercise in the analysis of basic kinetic data. When you press "New Problem", a set of kinetic data for the reaction of three species A,B and C will appear in the table. First, use the data to determine the reaction orders for all three and enter these in the appropriate cells. Then press "Check Orders" and the results appear in the box below the button. Once you have obtained the orders, determine the value of the rate constant, enter it in the box and press "Check k". The results will appear in the box below the button. The final table will keep track of problems done and total errors.
Trial [A] [B] [C] Rate(M/sec)
