The rate law for the following reaction is given below:
Cl2(g) + CHCl3(g)–>HCl(g) + CCl4(g)
Rate = K.[Cl2]1/2.[CHCl3]
What are the units for K, assuming time in seconds and concentration in mol/L?
The unit for Rate is => mol.L-1.s-1
Rate = K[Cl2]1/2[HCl3]
The unit of K is: mol-1/2. L1/2.s-1
The unit of K can be also written as: s-1/(mol/L)1/2
