Solution: Regular flights of supersonic aircraft in the stratosphere are of concern because such aircraft produce nitric oxide, NO, as a byproduct in the exhaust of their engines. Nitric oxide reacts with ozone, and it has been suggested that this could contribute to depletion of the ozone layer.The reaction NO + O3 ⟶ NO2 + O2 is first order with respect to both NO and O3 with a rate constant of 2.20 × 107 L/mol/s. What is the instantaneous rate of disappearance of NO when [NO] = 3.3 × 10−6 M and [O3] = 5.9 × 10−7 M?
