The mechanism shown here is proposed for the gas phase reaction, 2 N2O5 → 4 NO2 + O2. What rate law does the mechanism predict?
N2 O5 ⇌ NO2 + NO3 Fast, k1 (forward), k-1 (reverse),
NO2 + NO3 → NO2 + O2 + NO Slow
NO + N2O5 → 3 NO2 Fast
a) Rate = k[N2O5]
b) Rate = k[N2O5]2
c) Rate = k[N2O5]0
d) Rate = k[NO2][NO3]
