2NO(g) + O2(g) --> 2NO2(g)

Derive the theoretical rate law and indicate whether or not this is a possible mechanism for the above reaction:

(1) 2NO(g) <-->* N2O2(g) (fast)
(2) N2O2(g) + O2(g) --> 2NO2(g) (slow)

Extra Info: This reaction is third order overall. NO is second order, and O2 is first order.

* indicates equilibrium arrows

Thank you!

    Now the reaction (2NO+2H2==> 2H20+N2) is believed to take place in three steps, the first of which is the fast reversible dimerization of NO to form N2O2, and the last of which (again fast) is the reaction N20 + H2 --> N2 + H2O. …

    Use Hess's law and the following equations to calculate ÄH for the reaction N2(g) + 2O2(g) N2O4(g). 2NO2(g)->N2O4(g) ÄH = –57.0 kJ/mol N2(g)+O2(g)->2NO(g) ÄH = 180.6 kJ/mol 2NO2(g)->2NO(g)+O2(gÄH = 114.4 kJ/mol
