A chemical reaction is first order with respect to compund X and second order with respect to compund Y.

i. Write the rate equation
ii. What is the overall order of this reaction?

Can someone please explain what's the difference between the rate equation and the overall order of the reaction?

the rate equation is the equation where you put the compounds with their relative orders (written as powers) rate =k[X][Y]^2 and the overall order is just a number - the sum of the orders so is 3.
