Consider the following mechanism for the formation of dinitrogen pentoxide:
NO2(g) + O3(g) → NO3(g) + O2(g)
NO3(g) + NO2(g) → N2O5(g)
Write the chemical equation of the overall reaction:
Are there any intermediates in this mechanism?
If there are intermediates, write down their chemical formulas. Put a comma between each chemical formula, if there’s more than one
