Consider a gaseous reaction, the rate of which is given by K[A] [B], the volume of the reaction vessel containing these gases is suddenly reduced to 1/4th of the initial volume. The rate of reaction relative to the original rate would be

Q: Consider a gaseous reaction, the rate of which is given by K[A] [B] , the volume of the reaction vessel containing these gases is suddenly reduced to 1/4th of the initial volume. The rate of reaction relative to the original rate would be

(A) 16/1

(B) 1/16

(C) 8/1

(D) 1/8

Solution: By reducing volume to 1/4th the concentration will become 4 times hence rate 16 times.

Ans: (A)
