The rate law can be expressed by:
r = k[reactant]n
From the reaction given:
2 NOBr(g) → 2 NO(g) +Br2(g)
The rate law then becomes:
r = k [NOBr]n
k will be the rate constant. n is the order of the reaction. Before solving for k, we must solve for n.
Substitute the values 1.01x102 for r and 0.600 for reactant in the first rate expression:
Consider this initial-rate data at a certain temperature for the reaction described by
2 NOBr (g) => 2 NO (g) + Br2 (g)
Determine the value and units of the rate constant k =?
