Answer:

It will increase by a factor of 8.

Explanation:

Just think through it mathematically:

Go ahead and plug in a 2 in for both #[Cl_2]# and #[NO_2]#.

You should get just a 2 from the #[Cl_2]#, but you'll get a 4 from the #[NO_2]# (because #2^2#). Multiply these together, and you get a factor of 8.

So regardless of what the actual concentrations of #Cl_2# and #NO_2# are, if you double both concentrations, your reaction rate will increase by a factor of 8.

Hope that helps :)
