. The thermal decomposition of dinitrogen pentoxide in the gas phase to give nitrogen dioxide and oxygen is a first order reaction. If the half life at 55 °C is 410 s, what is the value of the rate constant k? If the initial concentration of dinitrogen pentoxide in an expt at 55 °C was 0.200 M what will be the concentration of dinitrogen pentoxide, nitrogen dioxide and oxygen after 4 half-lives?
