Based on this diagram, which equation best describes the reaction? [Section 3.1]

(a) $$\mathrm{A}_{2}+\mathrm{B} \longrightarrow \mathrm{A}_{2} \mathrm{~B}$$

(b) $$\mathrm{A}_{2}+4 \mathrm{~B} \longrightarrow 2 \mathrm{\ AB}_{2}$$

(c) $$2 \mathrm{~A}+\mathrm{B}_{4} \longrightarrow 2 \mathrm{\ AB}_{2}$$

(d) $$\mathrm{A}+\mathrm{B}_{2} \longrightarrow \mathrm{AB}_{2}$$

Step 1 of 3

The chemical reactions involve the formation of a new compound that has entirely different properties from its constituent elements.

The atomicity in a molecule represents the number of atoms it contains and the atoms are of the same element or different elements.
