Ozone decomposes to oxygen according to the equation 2O_{3 (g}_{)} ⟶ 3 O_{2 (g)}. Write the equation that relates the rate expressions for this reaction in terms of the disappearance of O_{3} and the formation of oxygen.

We’re being asked to** write the rate expression** in terms of** a)**** the rate of disappearance of O_{3}** and

2O_{3 (g}_{)} ⟶ 3 O_{2 (g).}

Recall that for a reaction **aA ****→**** bB**, the ** rate of a reaction** is given by:

$\overline{){\mathbf{Rate}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{-}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{a}}\frac{\mathbf{\Delta}\mathbf{\left[}\mathbf{A}\mathbf{\right]}}{\mathbf{\Delta t}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{b}}\frac{\mathbf{\Delta}\mathbf{\left[}\mathbf{B}\mathbf{\right]}}{\mathbf{\Delta t}}}$

where:

**Δ[A]** = change in concentration of reactants or products (in mol/L or M), *[A] _{final} – [A]_{initial}*

**Δt** = change in time, *t _{final} – t_{initial}*

**a, b **= stoichiometric coefficients from balanced equation
