🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Lirag's class at University of Houston-Clear Lake.

Solution: Determine the rate law and the value of k for the following reaction using the data provided.2 NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g)

Problem

Determine the rate law and the value of k for the following reaction using the data provided.

2 NO(g) + O2(g) → 2NO2(g)

Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the rate law and the value of the rate constant (k) based on the reaction and data given.


Recall that the rate law only focuses on the reactant concentrations and has a general form of:

rate law=kAxBy

k = rate constant
A & B = reactants
x & y = reactant orders


We’re going to calculate the rate law and the rate constant using the following steps:
