Rate Law for Proposed Mechanism

Consider the reaction 2NO(g) + O2 ---> 2NO2 (g). The following mechanism has been proposed to explain the experimental rate law: 1. 2NO --> and <-- N2O2 (fast) 2. O2 + N2O2 --> 2NO2 (slow) Give the rate law for the proposed mechanism. If necessary, use the pre-equilibrium assumption to determine an expression for the co

Rate Constant with Temperature Changes

Half-life of first order process

A reactant undergoes a dissociation reaction A r arrow 2B which follows first order kinetics. The initial concentration of reactant A is .4000 M and after 75.00 hr the concentration of A decreases to 0.0816 M. Determine the half-life of the first order process. There must be a simple equation for this, but my textbook must a
