Solution: The Rate law for the reaction 2 NO(g) + Cl2(g) → 2 NOCl(g) is: Rate = k [NO][Cl2] If the following is the mechanism for the reaction                          k1 NO(g) + Cl2(g) → NOCl2(g)              

Problem

The Rate law for the reaction
2 NO(g) + Cl2(g) → 2 NOCl(g)
is: Rate = k [NO][Cl2]
If the following is the mechanism for the reaction
                         k1
NO(g) + Cl2(g) → NOCl2(g)
                              k2
NOCl2(g) + NO(g) → 2NOCl(g)


Which statement is  NOT  true?

A) The reaction is 2nd order overall
B) k1 < k2
C) Doubling the [Cl2] will double the rate
D) The reaction is first order in [Cl2]
E) If the volume is doubled the rate will quadruple
