Why an elementary reaction becomes second order reaction at low pressure?

Dear student,

A second-order reaction depends on the concentrations of one second-order reactant, or two first-order reactants.

For a second order reaction, its reaction rate is given by:

\ -\frac{d[A]}{dt} = 2k[A]^2 or \ -\frac{d[A]}{dt} = k[A][B] or \ -\frac{d[A]}{dt} = 2k[B]^2

In several popular kinetics books, the definition of the rate law for second-order reactions is -\frac{d[A]}{dt} = k[A]^2. Conflating the 2 inside the constant for the first, derivative, form will only make it required in the second, integrated form.
