🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Polisar's class at FORDHAM.

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

$\overline{){\mathbf{Rate}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{k}}{\left[\mathbf{A}\right]}^{{\mathbf{x}}}{\left[\mathbf{B}\right]}^{{\mathbf{y}}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathbf{Rate}\mathbf{=}\mathbf{}\mathbf{k}{\left[\mathrm{NOCl}\right]}^{\mathbf{n}}$

Finding n using experiment 1 and 2:

The decomposition of nitrosyl chloride was studied:

2NOCl (g) ⇌ 2NO (g) + Cl_{2} (g)

The following data were obtained where

a. What is the rate law?
