Problem: Many gaseous reactions occur in a car engine and exhaust system. One of these is represented by the following equation: NO2 (g) + CO (g) ⇄ NO (g) + CO2 (g) What is the rate of the reaction if the concentrations of NO2 and CO are 0.25 M and 0.30 M respectively?  For the choices below, what is the order of reaction for NO2?
