Problem

The rate law for the reaction 2NO2 + O3 → N2O5 + O2 is rate = K[NO2][O3]. Which one of the following mechanisms Is consistent with this rate law?

A. NO2 + NO2 → N2O2 (fast)

N2O4 + O3 → N2O5 + O2 (slow)

B. NO2 + O3 → NO5 (fast)

NO5 + NO5 → N2O5 + (5/2)O2 (slow)

C. NO2 + O3 → NO3 + O2 (slow)

NO3 + NO2 → N2O5 (fast)

D. NO2 + NO2 → N2O2 + O2 (slow)

N2O2 + O3 → N2O5 (fast)
