Problem: The rate of the reactionO (g) + NO2 (g) → NO (g) + O2 (g)was studied at a certain temperature.a. In one experiment, NO2 was in large excess, at a concentration of 1.0 x 10 13 molecules/cm3 with the following data collected:What is the order of the reaction with respect to oxygen atoms?

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Barile's class at UNR.

To determine the order of the reaction with respect to O, we shall plot ln[O] versus time.

This yields the following graph:
