Sulfuryl chloride, SO2Cl2, decomposes to SO2 and Cl2 according to the reaction
SO2Cl2(g) -> SO2(g) + Cl2(g)
The reaction is first order in SO2Cl2, and the value of the rate constant, k, is 2.20*10-5 /s at 300K.
(a) Calculate the intial rate of reaction when a reactor is charged with SO2Cl2 at a concentration of 0.22 mol/L.
Enter the numerical value in mol/L s:
b) Calculate how long it will take for the conctration of SO2Cl2 in the reactor in part (a) to fall to 1/4 of its initial value.
Enter the numerical value in s:
