Problem: Consider the following elementary reaction equation.NO3 (g) + CO (g) yields NO2 (g) + CO2 (g)What is the order with respect of NO3?What is the overall order of the reaction?Classify the reaction as unimolecular, bimolecular, or termolecular

FREE Expert Solution

a. rate = k [reactant]coefficient

rate = k [NO3] [CO]


b. overall order → sum of coefficients in rate law

1 + 1 = 2

Overall order → 2
