Chapter 15 question 3c.

In this question, it asks what the unique rate of reaction is. What does this exactly mean?

The unique rate of a reaction is the same as reaction rate, which is the rate of change of any reactant divided by its stoichiometric coefficient. The sign is always negative for reactants and positive for products. -(1/a)dA/dt=(1/b)dB/dt

Basically, just divide the rate you got in part a by 2, because there are 2 moles of NO2 in the balanced equation.

6.5 x 10^-3M/s / 2 = 3.3 x 10^-3 M/s
