Two gaseous compounds, A and B are introduced into an evacuated reaction chamber. The resulting reaction is exothermic and the balanced chemical equation is shown below. A(g) + B(g) —> C(g) Transcribed Image Text: As substance A collides with substance B to form C, not all collisions of A and B result in the formation of C. Which statement
explains why the collisions of A and B may not result in the formation of C?
(A) The collisions of substances A and B must be elastic for the formation of C.
(B) Substances A and B must collide with the correct geometry in order for a reaction to take place.
(C) The type of the catalyst (heterogeneous or homogeneous) must be taken into account for the collisions to produce C.
(D) The molecularity of the rate law must match the collisions. An example would be if the rate law is third order, then three
particles must collide at once.
