    The thermal decomposition of nitrous oxide (N2O) in the gas phase at 1030oK is studied in a constant volume vessel at various initial pressures of N2O. The half-life data so obtained are as follows:

    po (mm Hg) 52.5 139 290 360

    t1/2 (sec) 860 470 255 212

    2N_2O → 2N_2 + O_2

    Determine the rate equation that fits the data.
