Dinitrogen pentoxide, N2O5, decomposes by a first-order reaction. What is the initial rate of decomposition of N2O5 when 3.6 g of N2O5 is confined in a 0.77 L container and heated to 65°C?
For this reaction, k = 5.2 x 10^-3 s-1 in the rate law (for the rate of decomposition of N2O5).
rate = k(N2O5)
