N2 is a catalyst. 2. ClO is an intermediate and Cl2 is a catalyst. 3. N2O is a reactant and Cl is a catalyst. 4. N2 is an intermediate and O2 is a final product.

Problem

Consider the following three step reaction mechanism

Cl2 (g) →  2 Cl (g)

2 N2O (g) + 2 Cl (g) →  2 N 2 (g) + 2 ClO (g)

ClO (g) + ClO (g) →  Cl2 (g) + O2 (g)

Which of the following statements are true?

1. N2 is a catalyst.

2. ClO is an intermediate and Cl2 is a catalyst.

3. N2O is a reactant and Cl is a catalyst.

4. N2 is an intermediate and O2 is a final product.
