Chemistry (rate reactions)
posted by Sheldon on .
The rate constant for the thermal decomposition at 85 degrees Celsius of dinitrogen pentoxide equals 6.2 x 10 raised to -2 min. As determined by experiment this decomposition is first order--
2 N2O5 ----> 4 NO2 + O2
Calculate the rate of the reaction when N2O5= .40 M
