Determine the rate equation, the rate constant, and the overall order for this reaction

2NOCl(g) ⟶ 2NO(g) + Cl2 (g)

Step 1. Calculate the order

2 raised to 2 = 4

x = 2 → 2nd order

Since there is only 1 reactant, the overall order is 2nd order

Step 2. Setup rate law

The rate law of the reaction is: rate =k[NOCl]2
