The following reaction mechanism has been proposed for a reaction:
(slow) NO2 + NO2-> NO3 + NO
(fast) NO3 + CO -> CO2 + NO2

A. Write the equation for the overall reaction from the mechanism above.

B.Write the rate law for the reaction

  • Chemistry - ,

    Sum the two equations. NO2 cancels on each side, NO3 cancels on each side to leave
    NO2 + CO ==> CO2 + NO

    B. The rate law for the reaction is determined by the slow step; therefore,
    rate = k(NO2)2
