For the following mechanism:

N205------>k1<--------k2 N02 + N03

N0 + N03 ------>k3 2N02

Using the steady-state assumption, find the expression for dPN02/dt

Note. The k1 is on top of the right pointing arow and k2 is below the left pointing arrow and the arrows are like they are in equilibrium. The k3 is above the lone arrow in the second reaction. In the find expression part the N02 is a subscript of P.
