Problem: Consider the following reaction: 2 N2O(g) → 2 N2(g) + O2(g). Express the rate of the reaction in terms of the change in concentration of each of the reactants and products.

FREE Expert Solution

Recall that for a reaction aA  bB, the rate of a reaction is given by:


Rate=-1aΔ[A]Δt=1bΔ[B]Δt


where:

Δ[A] = change in concentration of reactants or products (in mol/L or M), [A]final – [A]initial

Δt = change in time, tfinal – initial
