Solution: The decomposition of dinitrogen pentoxide, N2O5, to NO2 and O2 is a first-order reaction. At 60°C, the rate constant is 2.8 × 10-3 min-1. If a rigid vessel initially contains only N 2O5 at a pressure

Problem

The decomposition of dinitrogen pentoxide, N2O5, to NO2 and O2 is a first-order reaction. At 60°C, the rate constant is 2.8 × 10-3 min-1. If a rigid vessel initially contains only N 2O5 at a pressure of 125 kPa, how long will it take for the total pressure to reach 176 kPa?
