Solution: Consider the following two-step mechanism for a reaction:NO2 (g) + Cl2(g) → ClNO2(g) + Cl(g)          k1, slowNO2 (g) + Cl(g) → ClNO2(g)          k2, fastWhat is the predicted rate law?

Problem
Consider the following two-step mechanism for a reaction:
NO2 (g) + Cl2(g)ClNO2(g) + Cl(g)          k1, slow
NO2 (g) + Cl(g)ClNO2(g)          k2, fast

What is the predicted rate law?
