The decomposition of nitrogen dioxide 2NO2-->2NO+O2 occurs in a two-step sequence at elevated tempatures. the first step lis NO2--> NO+O. predict a possible second step that, when combined with the first step, gives the complete reaction

  • CHEM -

    elemental Oxygen, O is highly reactive.

    O+O>O2

    combine that with the first step
