Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:

rate law=kAxBy


Reaction:      2 N2O5 → 4NO2 + O2

Given:            1st order reaction

                        Rate = 4.82 x 10-3 s-1

                        [A] = 0.0260 M

Problem Details

The decomposition of N2O5 in carbon tetrachloride proceeds as follows:

2 N2O5 → 4 NO2 + O2

The rate law is first order in N2O5. At 64 oC the rate constant is 4.82 x 10-3 s-1.

What is the rate of reaction when [N2O5] = 0.0260 M?
