3rd order reaction of the type (A + B + C → P)

The rate law for the 3rd order reaction of the type A + B + CP is:


Using the same logic described in a previous article, we can rewrite the rate law as:


where a = [A0], b = [B0] and c = [C0].

Integrating the above equation throughout, we have


Substituting the partial fraction expression \small \frac{1}{(a-x)(b-x)(c-x)}=\frac{1}{(a-x)(b-a)(c-a)}+\frac{1}{(b-x)(a-b)(c-b)}+\frac{1}{(c-x)(a-c)(b-c)}  in the above integral and after some algebra, we have,
