# Problem: Nitrogen monoxide reacts with chlorine according to the equation:2NO(g) + Cl2 (g) ⟶ 2NOCl(g)The following initial rates of reaction have been observed for certain reactant concentrations:What is the rate equation that describes the rate’s dependence on the concentrations of NO and Cl2? What is the rate constant? What are the orders with respect to each reactant?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the rate law and the value of the rate constant (k) based on the reaction and data given.

Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:

k = rate constant
A & B = reactants
x & y = reactant orders

We’re going to calculate the rate law and the rate constant using the following steps:
