Problem Details

Consider the following reaction: 

2HBr (g) → H2 (g) + Br2 (g) 

Part A 

In the first 23.0 s of this reaction the of HBr dropped from 0.550 M to 0.457 M. Calculated the average rate (M•s-1) of the reaction in this time interval.  Express your answer using two significant figures. 



Part B

If the volume of the reaction in part (a) was 1.50 L. what amount of Br2 (in moles) was formed during the 15.0 s of the reaction?  Express your answer using two significant figures.
