For the decomposition of nitrous oxide at 565°C, the rate of the reaction is determined by measuring the disappearance of N2O. 

2N2O → 2N2 + O2 

At the beginning of the reaction, the concentration of N 2O is 1.01 M. After 21.2 min the concentration has dropped to 0.419 M. 

What is the rate of the reaction?
