Doubling the concentration of B, while keeping the concentration of A constant, how is the value of k be affected? How is the rate affected?

Jan 29th, 2015

It really depends on the reaction itself...

For example, if your hypothetical reaction x A + y B = f C, the rate will be considering reactants A and B. And, if for example, rate =k[A]^2[B] , then:

Doubling the [A] will quadruple the rate; doubling the [B] will double the rate. 
 

You did not indicate such conditions in your problem set, so it is hard to help. 

Also, answering your second question:

Changing the concentration has no effect on the value of k: it is a constant at a given temperature.
