Solution: The decomposition of N2O to give N2 and O2 is second order with a rate constant of 0.051 moles−1•L•s−1. If the initial N2O concentration is 0.58 moles/L, how long will it take for the concentration to

Problem

The decomposition of N2O to give N2 and O2 is second order with a rate constant of 0.051 moles−1•L•s−1. If the initial N2O concentration is 0.58 moles/L, how long will it take for the concentration to drop to one half of its initial value?
