Example 7C.1

Postby Joseph Saba » Sun Mar 08, 2020 6:53 pm

How should we think of the rate of decomposition vs rate of formation in this type of scenario? Will we have to do this one a test?

I think the rate of decomposition relates to the rate of formation in that they are conveyed by the same rate law. For part a, the reaction is
NO + NO --> N2O2. The rate law is rate = k[NO]^2. For the decomposition of NO, the rate law is k[NO]^2, and for the rate of formation of N2O2, the rate law is still k[NO]^2.
