Problem

A chemist studied the reaction mechanism for the reaction:

2NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g)

by reacting N16O with 18O2. If the reaction mechanism is

NO + O2 ⇌ NO3 (fast equilibrium)

NO3 + NO → 2NO 2 (slow)

what distribution of 18O would you expect in the NO 2? Assume that N is the central atom in NO 3, assume only N16O18O2 forms, and assume stoichiometric amounts of reactants are combined.
