Problem: This reaction was experimentally determined to be first order with respect to O2 and second order with respect to NO: O2(g) +2 NO(g) → 2 NO2(g)The diagrams shown here represent reaction mixtures in which the number of each type of molecule represents its relative initial concentration. Which mixture has the fastest initial rate?
