How would each of the following change the rate of the reaction shown here?

2NO(g) +2H2(g) ➞ N2(g) + 2H2O(g)

a. Adding some NO(g)

b. decreasing the temperature 

c. Removing some H2(g

d. Adding a catalyst


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given reaction:

2NO(g) +2H2(g) ➞ N2(g) + 2H2O(g)

Step 2

a. Adding some NO(g):

As, concentration of reactant increases the number of molecules per unit volume increases which increases the collision between the molecules to give more products.

Rate of reaction increases by adding NO(g)

Step 3

b. decreasing the temperature 

As temperature decreases, the number of molecules per unit volume decreases which decreases ...
