Quiz Prep #1 Winter 2016 Question 7

Postby 704578485 » Thu Feb 18, 2016 2:18 pm

Question #7 involves a reaction tgat has 3 mechanisms/steps. It ask from this to formulate the rate constant. The slowest step is NO+NO->N2O2. I get that the slowest step determines the reaction rate but how do you determine the reaction order?

By saying that "step" we mean that it's an elementary reaction. So you just need to find what's the coeffiency in that reaction(after simplified and balanced) to determine what's the order.
