Homework Help: Inorganic chemistry

Posted by Steve on Tuesday, May 12, 2009 at 6:11pm.

Nitrogen dioxide reacts with carbon monoxide to produce nitrogen monoxide and carbon dioxide.

NO2(g) + CO(g) ==>NO(g) + CO2(g)

A proposed mechanism for this reaction is

2No2(g) = NO3(g) + NO(g) (fast,equilibrium)
NO2(g) + CO(g) ==> NO2(g) + CO2(g) (slow)

The rate law consitent with the propose mechanism is

rate = k[NO2]^2[CO]/[NO]

How?
