    NO is reduced by hydrogen to give N (g) & H2O vapor. One possible mechanism to account for this reaction is:

    Step 1: 2NO (g)<---> N2O2 (g)
    Step 2: N2O2 (g) + H2 (g) --> N2O (g) + H2O (g)
    Step 3: N2O (g) + H2 (g) --> N2 (g) + H2O (g)

    Determine the net reaction, the molecularity of each step and assuming step 3 is rate limiting determine the rate law for the mechanism.
