# AND EQUILIBRIUMKINECalculating the reaction rate of one reactant from that of anotherDENitric acid is a key industrial chemical, largely used to make fertilizers and explosives. The first step in its synthesis is the oxidation of ammonia. In this reaction,gaseous ammonia reacts with dioxygen gas to produce nitrogen monoxide gas and water.Suppose a chemical engineer studying a new catalyst for the oxidation of ammonia reaction finds that 188, liters per second of dioxygen are consumed when thereaction is run at 266. °C and 0.42 atm. Calculate the rate at which nitrogen monoxide is being produced. Give your answer in kilograms per second.

Step 1

Given,

Temperature of the reaction = 266°C = 266 + 273 K = 539 K

Pressure of the reaction = 0.42 atm = 42.55 K Pa

Volume of dioxygen = 188 litres

Gas Constant, R = 8.314 L K Pa K-1 mol-1

According to ideal gas equation,

Step 2

Now the value of n=0.001785 K mol which is equal to the 17.8 g moles of nitrogen produced.

The reaction of the mixture is –

Therefore, the product of the...
