### 2016 Final

For student B in problem four, how would you write the rate law because there are two intermediates? do you need to cancel out the O2's on each side to make it only have one intermediate or is there another method?

I think to write the overall rate law, the equation would be 2ClO(g)+ O2(g) -->2ClO2(g), in which the O2 from step one and the 2O2 from step two would be cancelled and become 1 O2(g). Therefore, the rate law would be rate = k[ClO2]2[O2].
