The rate of the reaction between hemoglobin (Hb) and carbon monoxide
(CO) was studied at 20C. The following data were collected, with all
concentration units in mol/L.

a) Determine the orders of this reaction with respect to Hb and CO.

Order of reaction:Rate = k [Hb]0X [CO]0Y

Experiment 2
Experiment 1 =

k [ Hb] x [CO] y
k [ Hb] x [CO] y

1.24
0.619 =

k [4.42] x [1.00 ] y
k [2.21] x [1.00] y

1.24
0.619 =

4.42

Experiment 2 =
3.71
1.24 =

3.71
1.24 =

k [ Hb] x [CO] y
k [ Hb] x [CO] y
k [4.42] x [3.00 ] y
k [4.42] x [1.00 ] y

3.00

2.99 = 3Y
Y=1

b) Determine the rate law.

Rate = k [Hb] [CO]
c) Calculate the value of the rate constant
From Experiment 1,
Rate = k [Hb] [CO]
0.619 = k [2.21] [1.00]
k=

0.619
[ 2.21 ] [ 1.00 ]

k = 0.28 s-1
d) What would be the initial rate for an experiment with [Hb] 0 = 3.36
mol/L and [CO]0 = 2.40 mol/L?
Rate = k [Hb] [CO]
Rate = 0.28 [3.36][2.4]
= 2.258 mol L-1 s-1
