In the reaction 2NO+Cl 2 gives 2Nocl it has been found at doubling the concentration of both the reactants increases the rate by a factor of eight but doubling the chlorine concentration alone only by doubles the rate Which of the following statement is incorrect- (a)the reaction in first order in chlorine (b)the reaction in second order in NO (c)the overall order of reaction is 2 (d)the overall order of reaction is3

Hi pallavi,

when Cl concentration is alone doubled the rate is doubled .... implies the rate is first order wrt  Cl...

as the rate is becoming 8 times when Cl and NO concentrations are doubled .... implies the rate is second order wrt NO

therefore..

(a),(b) & (d) are the correct options.
