The following mechanism for the gas phase decomposition of oxygen difluoride is consistent with the observed rate law.
step 1 fast: 2 OF2 ⇌ O2F4
step 2 slow: O2F4 → O2 + 2 F2
(1) What is the equation for the overall reaction? Use the smallest integer coefficients possible. If a box is not needed, leave it blank.
